I guess I wonder if the game is very CPU dependent, but I also wonder if a 7800GT would run the game fine at max details at 720p, with minimal AA and AF too.

The CPU will probably hurt him a lot. I remember reading a review where a Core 2 duo at 3.4ghz was maxed out with both cores at 100% the majority of the time, especially around a lot of characters and AI. If he would upgrade to a dual core he would be fine even if he just stuck with AMD.

A 7800GT would probably do ok at 720p with no AA and min AF.
