OK someone has asked me to recommend for a build but I want to ask if OpenCL will be supported on older cards (Geforce 9xxx, Radeon 4xxx). The person's a mainstream buyer so I don't think he would like to wait for 40nm, lynnfield etc.

I'd think any nvidia CUDA gpu(late 8xxx and up) would also get OpenCL support, not sure where AMD is going with their radeon, though.
