I'll ask about the CPU and motherboard. These aren't things that would have to be done right away for stability, would they. Is it something we can wait on and see how performance is and do later? We have (or rather my son) no more money to spend on this right now.

The CPU can wait. Should not affect stability at all, but will affect performance. I believe most games nowadays consider 2.2 ghz to be the minimum reccomendation (though will probably install with less).
