And that card is well under the specs for the game. At best if you could find a cheap (and I mean really cheap) used 7600 GT, then the game might run. Unfortunately anything that could run the game is going to cost more than the entire computer is worth, and not really worth doing as when you do get a new computer you won't be able to move the video card over to it.

The thing is, he has just bought 2 x 1Gb of DDR PC3200, is there any motherboard that will support them?

Just like buying a video card for it, that was a waste of money as there is nothing available today that uses it anymore. All computers sold today are using either DDR2 or DDR3, with most being DDR3.

Then you need to make him understand that there is nothing left to upgrade in it,

1. motherboard/socket, discontinued 6-7 years ago

2. CPU for said motherboard, discontinued 6-7 years ago

3. AGP discontinued. Some of the card manufacturers were still making the odd one up until just recently, but any of those cards are worth more than the entire computer is worth (over here if you're really lucky you might get around $50-75 for one of similar spec)

4. DDR ram, while still available to buy (and only for people like your friend to possibly extend the life of an old computer, or replace faulty modules) is a non-issue as it is pretty much dead and buried

There's really not much more he can do with that system. stormy has already told you there's not much left in that system.

Honestly he can't expect to play the newer (as in a lot newer that his current system) games with that system. And even if the games do run, is he getting anything out of them in terms performance???

I don't his financial situation, but if he wants to game on a PC, he'll need something better than what he currently has.

My two cents.

What kind of budget does he have to play with? Also does it have to be a pre-built, or are you or him OK with building one?

Financially you'd be better off building your own with parts off ebay(or wherever) just as long as you have the technical know how or there are some decent ones around that will max the majority of games. Take for example the one below, this is going to be around the cheapest you will find that will do a good job.

GALAXY-AMD-X4-940-GAMING-PC-COMPUTER-1TB-4GB-GTX-260

You will be hard pressed getting a decent one for your price range.
