yeah, go for the 7900gs, or the 8800gts 320mb.

the later can be found at $270ish and is probably thebest for price/proformance as far as dx10 goes.

the 7900gs is a decent dx9 card that can be found at about $150

well if he is looking for something close to the speeds of his 6800 that is DX10 he could get a 8600GT.
