His power supply won't handle that. The 4870x2 probably uses 3x more energy than the 8800gt.

I'm not looking for something very powerful or high-end, mainly because his PSU is an LC Power 550W, his monitor is 1280x1024 and processor is a 5000BE @ stock.
Item has to be shipped to EU, so obviously if you're in the EU shipping will be cheaper.
But I'll consider sellers from any location depending on what is offered and the total price.
Your brother should upgrade to the newer 5x00, 6x00, and 7x00 cards - the low/medium end ones use about the same amount of electricity as the 8800gt while having improved performance.
For example, I suggest a 5770 or a 6770 (the two are exactly the same, just rebranded). It is 150% the performance of the 8800gt, but uses about the same amount of power as a 9800GT (which in turn uses about the same electricity as an 8800GT). People around here, on overclock forums, ebay, etc sell the 5770/6770 for about $80.
