If this is you mother board :
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

You need three things:
1). I see you have ONLY two DIMM (RAM) slots, IF one is open, it would be good to add another 2Gb DIMM...

2). Power supply, 600watts will power just about any single card. Corsair is a great brand so I'd agree with this choice:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
NOTE: if you pull the trigger TODAY, save an Extra $5, so only $45 after rebate...

3). Video card, buy the most powerful card you can afford (you can't add a second in the future, so, go for the best you can now) at right around $200, I'd go for:

PowerColor 7870
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ($170 after rebate)

Or
ASUS GTX 660

4GB ram, a 500/600 watt psu and a graphics card like everything between 7770/7870 will be fine. That pentium is perfect for low/medium settings and you can upgrade it to a i5 3570k in the future. Go for jb6684's parts.

Yeah, CPU isn't the best but he can up grade that Next..... :)  (just don't want him to spend too little on the GPU that he'll have to upgrade again shortly...)

I have an old i7-920 system that I've upgraded from:
- single 5870
- to dual 5870's
- to single 7970
- to dual 7970's
--- Saw more FPS everytime....
