Heat not an issue? I wouldn't touch the GTX4** series....
The GTX5**-series refresh is here to prove how 4** was rushed...anyway, this is still a good card.

Although he's looking at spending $200 MAX, I'd go HD6950 for $299 ...runs cooler than GTX470, more powerful, 2GB memory buffer (MIGHT be more future-proof a LITTLE BIT).

I know money doesn't grow up in trees...
