    He will be able to run almost every game, just on low-medium settings.

    That's a low end budget card so I'd say anything put out in 2004 would prolly have to be on low settings unless he has a powerful CPU and atleast a Gig of RAM.

    Be advised this is the bottom of the barrel, retailed Oct 2003. This 83 M transister was the last of the FX5 type. And since it only does 6GB/s it has less performance than the May 2002 GF4 Ti 4200 (2Gtexel, 7.1GB/s, on 63M transister.) For $70 to $90 this FX5700 if you must stick with nvidia, really consider the GF6600 ($110 to $180 [GT,]) if gaming performance is your consideration using a near or +3GHz cpu. But the GF6600 is only 8.8GB/s whereas the GF6600GT is 16GB/s using 146M transisters.
