Plus if you're like me, you like your PC producing the least heat possible (keep in mind the difference between that, and keeping your PC cool - two separate things) and it wins in that department as well.
Yeah, the 6850 would be a nice choice for him. Either way, he needs a new power supply as 300 watts is not near enough.

Thx guys really appretiate the help, I might just pick up the 6850 with a antec 500W down town where i live I watched a dude play crysis 1 maxed 1080p 50 frames (still the hardest game to run i do believe)

just wondering how ati/amd's drivers are compared to nvidia's?
because iam loving the their drivers atm and instead might get a gtx 460

Ok out of all the local stores i have decided on the EVGA gtx 460 for 213$
but which PSu should i buy?

Thermaltake TR2 600W ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply=70$

Ultra Products 550watt Lifetime Series Pro ATX Power Supply =60$

I still think the GTX 470 EVGA Rec. for $195 is the better deal ,It is faster then the HD 6850 in ever review I looked at ,and that is at default speed.Once you overclock it as low as 660/1700 then it is faster then the HD 6870I keep hearing they run hot ,but I have three of them but just running two so I have a space between them and mine idle at 34c and 35c.Running vantage or 3Dmark 11 they never get above 72c with the fan at 70% which it is quiet and I run them at 700/1400/1750 at default voltage.But I have a good cooling case.I see the reviews but I never reach 88c unless I am really overclocking it with more voltage 825/1650/1900.Plus the Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-520 520W for $53 with it's 10% discount and free shipping.It has a single 12v rail of 40amps and it up to 88% efficient.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371047
