Yes it will be a substantial improvement. It is tiered about the level of HD4650DDR3 so for $40 it is good. Don't know about the fan though your friend should know

9600gt will be about twice as fast as the 220. The only benefit of the 220 is that it will work with a weak power supply.

A GT 220 will be alot faster than your current onboard 8100, but it is still rather weak for gaming. Of course a 9600GT would be alot faster, as would a more power friendly GT 240 or Radeon 5670.
