don't have access to e-mail at work so ill justt reply here.

since you mentioned it is an xbox 360 elite, i can safely assume it is at least 3 years old now and starting to give out on you. sound like the GPU is having some issues keeping cool. try opening up the console and cleaning it out and and apply new thermal compound to the GPU and CPU. I use arctic silver 5 which can be bought at just about any small computer shop, never found it at any big box stores around my place.

try that out and see what results you get, if it is still having issues then it could potentionally be the solder is going back and needs a reflow or a malfunction in the chip itself

If he's not comfortable repairing hardware, then yeah just buy a new Xbox.
The Xbox 720 will be out in 2013 so they should all be on special atm....

Thermal compound and a screwdriver will set you back $20 tops.

being that the xbox is that old it could just be overheating due to not being cleaned, would be the best to try first, would be a much cheaper fix. if that still does not resolve then consider buying a used or new.

depends how long and how much you use it, AS5 works better the longer it is used, but again after a year i always replace the compound and even with a 3.5g tube you can probably re-apply it 10x over
