It depends what editing software he uses.

Some editors use NVidia CUDA to accelerate the editing process, others use ATI AVIVO stream. Some editors, like PowerDirector 8, can use both brands of video card to enable acceleration.

You have enough with a 9600GT or Same range (A 9500GT is even good enough!)

9600GT or 8800GT would do fine.

Most photo editors are a bit rough when it comes to good GPU acceleration, expect this to be fixed very soon with OpenCL.
