I almost wrote the same thing, but then I noticed he's got a PCI- 
Express slot, and the choices in that configuration are a little more  

The 7300 is a low-priced card and, while it might be a *little* more  
than required, isn't all that overblown, especially if he's going to  
do HD in the future.

I think putting anything less than 1GB into a machine these days  
doesn't make sense. I've got 1GB and, while I almost never swap, come  
close to it fairly often.

I definitely agree about the HDD space though, a 120 is a good  
"operating system" disk but way low for video storage (as I said in  
an earlier post).
