If I recall his is s939... one of the first.

So he could throw some more RAM in there. Mobo probably supports up to 4GB. It then becomes a decision of what is more cost-effective, adding more RAM or getting a new mobo + CPU + RAM. I'm imagine that for what it'd cost him to get 2GB+ of DDR400 RAM he could at least buy a new AthlonII x2 chip with a new mobo... he'd then have to purchase some DDR2 RAM and maybe a new video card. If that 6600GT is PCI-e he could just use it until he had the cash to get something a bit newer.
