Before I switched to C2D, I was using a Pentium D 820 with 7600GT. Ran COD4 just fine. It depends though. What GPU does it have?

19.9ghz? do you mean 1.9? Right, well either proc should meet light gaming and multitasking needs. For the gaming though, I'd suggest buying a decent GPU like this
Not great, but it'll get your friend through his light gaming needs.
