Absolutely 100%!!!!!!!!!! that card is proberly the worst on the market, it really is that slow.
You friend would really benefit with an upgrade, depending on how much he wants to spend his sytem has the making of a great gaming machine,
ATI 9600/9800 or n'vida FX 5700/5900 £60-£135
or even better:
ATI X800 256MB or GFORCE 6800 256MB !!! £250-£375
I have a PNY 6800 GT 256MB DDR3 £279inc vat card with a AMD 2500+ Barton and 1GB PC2700 RAM and hit 10,000+ 3DMark03.
In your friends set up that card would be hitting 11,500+ and would run anything he throws at it fora good couple of years, this generation of cards really has offered over a 100% performance increase after the last and will be a little while before anything 100% better arrives.
Having said that if 3D gaming worlds are not really a desire your friend good quite easaily be playing high resolution great games for £60 with a ATI 9550/9600 or FX 5500/5600/5700.
