And he has a 550W PSU. We don't know what brand so I'm assuming it's generic. There are 275s for $200 but I don't think they're worth it over the 216.
Actually, 1080p is 1920x1080
. 1920x1200 would still fall in the category, but would be a higher resolution, even if only by a little bit.

If he has a decent one like a corsair, then he should be able to use a GTX280.
Don't go for the factory overclocked ones. You aren't actually getting anything better for the price, you're just paying for different settings you can do yourself. Also, for just a bit more you could get a 275 which would last longer getting good FPS.
