13k is a decent budget -- get a GTX 560 @ ~10.9k and a Corsair VS 450 @ 2.1k or if your friend has future upgrade plans ( as the gpu will be bottlenecked by the cpu ) opt for HD7770 @ ~8.2k and Corsair GS600 @ 4.6k

Umm, sorry, can someone tell me what "bottleneck" means? :\

A bottleneck is a phenomenon where the performance or capacity of an entire system is limited by a single or limited number of components or resources.

Refer to Topgear's suggestion of GTX 560 getting bottlenecked(GPU performance limited) by your friends current CPU.

Exactly i would like to reiterate those words....

my E7500 feels sometimes seems to be bottleneck with my HD6770. :|

^^ so you are saying because of HD6770 you can't get the proper performance out of E7500 ;-)

He's asking if he should go for 550ti, 6850 or 7770.. Can someone tell me the prices of these? And he says 6850 is for eleven. True? Or is it nine?

Don't even think of GTX 550 Ti .. get a HD6850 ( if you can at ~9-~10k ) or opt for HD7770.
