We live in south africa the 9800GT has been discontinued here so thats what i need to find a replacement card for him. Thats why i was looking at the Asus 5570 1GB, it looks like a decent card and its in his budget.
Ill try and get the specs
Can't he get a HD 5670? (5670~9800GT, but cooler, has DX11 and eats less power)
