Default Upgrade to what lol

Ok so I got brought this PC today, its older but not total trash.

Athlon FX-53
1gb DDR400
Geforce FX5500 256mb AGP

Its in a Compaq X and has a 500w Enermax PSU. But no PCIe plugs, Board is MSI Nforce3 250GB board, so taht rules out Geforce 68xx cards due to the bug they never fixed.

But this guy wants an upgrade for it, he says it struggles a bit in WoW and he really wants to play CoD MW2 with his son. So what do ya suggest for him. Budget is 75 bucks.
Xeon x5460 -- EVGA 680i -- 8gb DDR2 800 -- Windows 7 Pro -- EVGA GTX 660 SC -- Patriot Blaze 60gb SSD
Pentium 4 3.2HT -- Abit IC7-G -- 2gb DDR 400 -- Windows XP MCE 2005 -- Saphire X800 XT AIW -- Seagate 250gb
Athlon XP 2500+ -- ECS K7VTA3 -- 512mb DDR 333 -- Windows 98SE -- Geforce 6200 -- WD 40gb
