512mb of RAM on xp could be another problem no one has really pointed at. Anyway, you're best bet would be upgrading the video card and/or adding more RAM. You won't be able to overclock since it's a pre-built


Core i7 920 @ 3.0Ghz
6gb G.Skill 1600mhz/9-9-9-24
Corsair 750XT
EVGA GTX 260---216core
WD 640gb
14590 3dmarks @ stock

Start out on ebay and you might be able to find a faster CPU + cooler, better AGP card and more RAM but that's going to cost you anyway. Fact of the matter is that even if you were able to OC that CPU (and you can't) it is not necessarily something you should do because you probably don't have very good cooling inside that prebuit case meaning you stand a fair chance of destroying the HW you do have and ending up with no PC at all.
If the game is experiencing some kind of glitch rather than just low FPS then you should take a look in your logs to see if you can find the reason.

If he's going to buy anything, he's better off just grabbing a few upgrades. 250 ish bucks can get him a sweet machine that will play some games pretty well, and he'll pretty much have a new machine.
