Default help upgrading my cuzins pc....

hey, my cousin really wants to play counter-strike source and hl2 but he doesnt have the best computer in the world. right now he plays cs:cz at 70 fps with onboard gforce4 card.

his specs are

sempron 3000+
512 DDR ram(not sure if its 2700 or 3200)
160 gig hdd

his budget is 200 dollars and he needs a card and i guess more ram. or what would you guys suggest that he gets?

That depends on what mobo he has, and what graphics slot it has. Oh, and what PSU does he have (wattage)?
