That I5 will be fine! If he is buying prebuilt make sure the PSU is big enough!

Depends on the game. Most games will work prefectly fin on that CPU. I have heard BF3 in MP though likes more cores.

Still overall it will be a good system. Just make sure he has a PSU that can support that GTX570.

I really don't think you're going to have to much of a bottlenecking problem with I5 and the GTX 570.
