2 years from now it will all be outdated.
Alienware makes a SICK rig for gaming. But you will end up spending 3k before you know it.

The desktop we have now won't handle most games. I can't play sims on it or anything. Could I just have this one upgraded or something?

Really the most important thing is a good video card. You can spend $200 and get a very good card that will run any game out there(something like this - very quick search). But then it's a matter of if you have a AGPx16, a good power supply and suitable cooling.
Anything more than a video card and it get's more complex, but if your son is really into it then he can learn himself. I can normally get a system that's equal to a $1000 Dell with about $600.
