I think an HD 5670 is he's best bet for the PC he has. He also needs to upgrade the RAM to minimum 2GB if he wants to play any newer game.

for his system then HD5670 maybe a good choice, any card above that will be an overkill for his system...

Then 2GB RAM is OK. HD 5670 is a very good card for the money.
