Is he playing wirelessly? because it looks like a network adapter? If that's the case he may want a stronger signal to the router. Also, the core i3 may be able to play at best medium settings. The graphics card will roughly play at best medium settings. Do he have anything else running in the background? such as anti-virus and etc, while playing a game?

Yea he do use the Wireless... And very bad net actually.. But he can easy play it on his PS3 without lag so it shouldn't be that. But he cant even play Mw2 on Lowest graph without lag... He uses Microst security essentials as a antivirus... Else i only think he got Skype open.. Maybe spotify sometimes

i3 2100 is a very capable processor and is able to run CoD MW3 on ultra. However, the issue is the graphics card. Basically he got scammed: it's not a graphics card for gaming at all. It's made for watching movies and playing facebook games. I'd suggest he returns the card and buys a proper one.

You may tell him to turn off the anti-virus during game. And turn close down the programs and see if it makes any difference. Also, Sunius is correct about the graphics card. It is not a gaming card.

From techpowerup:

"As we saw in our benchmarks, NVIDIA's GeForce GT 520 is clearly not good enough for any serious gaming. If you are willing to sacrifice details settings, down to lowest in most games I could imagine things being playable at 1024x768, but not beyond. Decent cards for gaming start around $100 with GT 440 or HD 5750, which means $40 more than the GT 520. So instead of going with such a low-end card the better choice would be to buy one game less and spend the saved money on a decent graphics card like the GT 440 or GTS 450."

Even HD 6670 for the same price would be much much better. It's around 3 times faster than GT 520.
