the Pentium D 960

this processor isn't really worth it though it will overheat a lot and it will be slow compared to todays processors

the best graphics card you can use on that is probably domething like a radeon HD 47xx or an NVIDIA 9800 GTX

yeah but it would be bottlenecked by the CPU and the PCI-E lanes would also slow it down

it would be better if he bought a new mobo

and also to the OP please do your own research it took me one minute to get that link whereas it took a half hour for you to get a reply
