Thank you for all of your replies. I have a couple quick questions:

Is there a large performance difference between the 7850 and the 650 ti?

What do you mean when you say that a power supply is 'better' than another? Also, will 450w be enough to power either GPU?

The antec 450w will do for 650 ti, 7850, 660 gtx.

In terms of performance it's like this 660 gtx > 7850 > 650 ti


See here the differences :

The 7850 will have more ~33-35% fps in game vs 650 ti

But with less than $200 budget.... you have to find best performance of parts within his budget. $182.55 graphics and $30.95 (plus shipping) PSU = over budget.

The cheapest solution is an antec vp-450 and the evga 650ti, it stays bellow 200$ even without the rebates.
Or a 7850 cutting in close with rebate.
I don't know what's the monitor resolution he has, the 650 ti could be even overkill if he has a 720p monitor.

Yes, true, but the antec vp-450 is a good psu, it can deliver ~500w @45c, not some diablotek,raidmax, coolmax, cooler master psu.
Toms hardware used it on the 500$ budget pc with a 7850.
As for the card, it's the best he can find with the rest of the money, either a 650 ti or 7850.

Some of us have strict budgets when upgrading, so assuming that someone can afford a little extra just because they can afford what they state is rather asinine...

Well, suggesting that someone save up a bit more money to end up better off....is a bit different from how the statement I quoted came across. If he's in a position to do so, saving up a bit extra would be his best option.
