Default is this card any good?

so i am looking for a graphics card for my friend, and he is an ATI fan, and dont want to use Nvidia, so the 8800, or the 9600 around this price range cant work.
heres a link

the fan and heatsink doesnt seem to be really efficient if OCed, and played for a long period of time.
Should i recommend this to him?
oh yeah, and he is like really lazy, so he never do the MIR.

That should be fine, try to get him to go a little higher though, he won't regret it.
