    The GTX690 is a very bad idea for a few reasons:

    1) The CPU in his system would be a major bottleneck so much of the performance of the card would be wasted.
    2) The GTX690 is a dual-GPU card thus has the same issue that SLI can have.

    At most, I'd recommend something like the Asus GTX770.

    *The GTX690 costs $1000. Is this the card you really meant? If so, you'd be way better off building an entire system for that price.

    Other:
    If he doesn't have 64-bit Windows he'll want to get that, or just get a 1GB video card like an HD7850 1GB. My advice is don't spend too much then save up for a completely new system.
