gts 450 and gts 250 is pretty close really, as far as gaming anyway

the gts 450 has a SLIGHT edge in gaming, and uses DX11 so if you plan to run any DX11 titles its probably the way to go, both are more than sufficient for 1600x900 resolution

the gts 450 really would shine over a gts 250 if you need cuda... but if you don't know what it is or if you need it... then chances are you don't need it

as the 450 is only a few dollars mroe and has an edge/dx11 i'd go with that if you run vista or windows 7, if windows xp you don't use dx11 i'd go gts 250

for games yes a gts 250 will be good, and almsot as good as a gts 450

when you get your new cpu in 2 years either card will likely be old by then but still be able to play games in mid settings.

i'd still say if you have vista or windows 7 try for the gts450 and if not the gts 250 though, as if you can use dx11 now then when you get your new cpu you'll be in a better spot

if you want smooth dx11 gameplay, start with a gtx460 even at that resolution.

may as well go for a gts580 with that logic and quad sli em....

if a 20 dollar difference is important to him (and it is to me to) i doubt he is going to want to spend that much on a gtx 460 ;)
