you can NOT play any new games with a $40 card.
you need at least 100 i would say, get maybe a 6600GT or something, something mid-tier ya know?
a ATI Radeon 9200 will not do jack ****, i had an ATI Radeon 9800 PRO, 64 mb ram, and i had to run WoW on the LOWEST settings across the board to even be able to play. i upgraded to a 7600GS 512mb ($171 including overnight shipping and rush processing, thank you newegg) and now i can run on all highest, but downgrading would have made it worse
tell your friend to save his **** money and get a card that will actually help instead of wasting his $40
