The $100 price difference between the NU and GT is worth it IMO.
If he purchased a 5600XT then we can assume he is on a strict budget. That's why I didn't even mention the 6800GT, because the 6800NU would already be stretching his budget. And the FX5900XT should be considered a bare minimum in this case. See my point?
