He would also need a new powersupply to run that ATI card.
If he has the money I would recommend a new computer.
With the slower and much older P4 processor, new RAM and a new videocard, plus powersupply is not really going to help very much on the gaming end.
The Dimension 4700 is only worth less than $75-$100 bucks max.
Would it be wise to spend $200+ bucks on something that is old and outdated?

+1 to starflyer's post.
to upgrade the video card would necessitate a power supply upgrade, and then the question becomes how much money will be sunk into your current computer that could potentially be better spent on a new machine?
nowadays, you can get (at least) a dual core processor, a spacious hard drive, a large portion of memory, and an adequate graphics adapter for a very good price.
