Default Asus 8600GT 512mb upgrade

Hi

My buddy wants to upgrade his 8600 he is bit on a budget 100 to be exact.
He was looking at the 9800GT but the card is discontinued and we cant find it anywhere.

I was looking at the Asus 5570 1GB. I have read some reviews stating its a good card but im not sure if its better than the 8600GT
He is playing mostly BF BC.

or is there other GC you would recommend

Thanks in advance

Power supply is gonna need an upgrade as well. I'm running my 9800GT on a 400W PSU, but that's like the bare minimum for that. ATI 5 series cards I'm sure are gonna need a little more juice.
