That'* what I'm using right now, and I've never had a problem with it. Well, except with VIVO, but I'm pretty sure that'* just my stupidity

BTW, that price is about 80 dollars less that what I paid for it

ATI is the best. And actually, it would depend on what cpu he has. If he has a Pentium, then nVidia might be a better card for him. ATI meshes well with AMD chips as AMD has purchased and owns ATI now. I only use ATI and AMD. Matter of fact, my next vid card will either be dual core or quad core. I already have a dual core cpu.
