AGP is dead technology. You will find cards for it, but the good ones will be kind of expensive. You should convince him to build a new PC, then to treat him, say you will buy him a video card. How much do you want to spend?

For about $45, you can get a POWERCOLOR Radeon X1650PRO AGP that should do the job. It's not the most high end card, but it will allow him to play more games at decent frame rates.
