I would recommend him get a 8800 gt, but, if he looks hard, he could get a cheap 4870, or (if he's lucky) a GTX 260. These cards are 15-30% better and have about the same heat/noise. But if the kids just play Sims, it's a difficult decision. personally, I say he just pay the extra $20-30. He won't regret it in the long run.
