people are asking crazy prices for 4650/4670 but you can get one for 35$, and you don't need additional power. I have 2 x 4650 in crossfire and was able to increase resolution in NFSHP2010 from 1024x768 with some hiccups to 1280x720 and fluid gaming.

if he has got by with an x800 for this long I sure the demands of his gpu is extremely minimal. The 6850 while it is a great card is complete overkill from a cost standpoint.
