No it won't, nor would it do any good on his system. The performance difference between a brilliant two-card SLI GeForce 8800GTX solution and a single GeForce 7600 would be very small because the rest of his computer would be the problem. With his kind of motherbord/cpu it's better to invest in a graphics card that will revitalize the computer for a while, making it possible to play new games at decent graphics, and then save up for a new one, or at least a complete overhaul.
If you want to fully take advantage of a GF80 series card, or any other DX10 card in the future (like the r600), you need a strong computer - I'd recommend at least AMD X2 4600 (or equivalent), 2GB ram and a decent motherboard.
The bottom line is: A GPU can't do a whole lot unless the rest is capable of keeping up.
