I have serious doubts it would run it on high at the worst resolution. I've had one and I've had a 6600. The 6600 could not pull off high at a decent resolution with consistent, good frames.

Desktop - Antec Sonata III
Intel Core i3 540
4 GB DDR3-1600 memory
ATI Radeon HD 5670
Windows Vista Business x64

How can you recommend him getting the X300!!!!? Do not buy it, they get shipped with Dell's and are no good. You be better off getting the same card as me X700 although it will be no good in 6months (depending on what games you play) , the x300 and the fx cards are already no good.
