It's not too bad IMO, but maybe 4GB would be more "standard"

Throw an SSD for the operating system in, e.g. this one ( Newegg.com - OCZ Vertex Turbo OCZSSD2-1VTXT60G 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Solid State Disks ). That would speed up the system considerably.

I'm not sure whether he can afford that .. Because his price is quiet limited .. I would recommend that to him

It's mainly just a difference in clock speed, DDR3 has a much higher maximum clock speed compared to DDR2 or DDR.

Might want to give the specs on that motherboard a good look,

Quote:
Memory
  1. 4 x 1.8V DDR2 DIMM sockets supporting up to 16 GB of system memory (Note 1)
  2. Dual channel memory architecture
  3. Support for DDR2 1333(O.C.) /1066/800 MHz memory modules (Note 2)
GA-MA785G-UD3H (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Specification

It won't work with DDR3, DDR2 only. Also a big no on that 9500, if he wants a quad core look at something from the Phenom II or Athlon II series.
