Default GTX570 vs 5850

A friend of mine has a 5850 in a C2D rig of his. He wants to upgrade his video card so that he can play most games on High - max resolutions. I have a spare Galaxy GTX570 that I could sell him. I paid $155 for it used a month ago.

If I sell him this card 1) is it a good deal for him, and 2) will it be a big enough upgrade over the 5850 to justify the expense?
