My mate wan'ts to buy CoD 2 and play online with me, but i am not sure if his computer will run CoD 2...He has a Dell computer not sure about the CPU and Ram, but he has an ATi Radeon x300. I know it's a bit old, but will it be enough to play CoD 2?? Also, what would it be equivilant to?? Like a 9800??

Thanks.

its about even with a 9800 Pro, it will play the game not sure how well though. Probably will have to play with settings medium and maybe a few on low. I suggest if your friend has any cash he updates.

X300 is not old, but it is one of the cheaper ati graphics cards. And what s cheaper that s worse... But, we can find a best buy card for your friend. I highly recommend Nvidia GeForce 6600GT if your friend doesn t have money for 6800GT or 7800GTX. And one more thing. Brand name computers are very complicated for upgrading. So if he doesnt have experience with that, you could help him if he is not your "online" friend. Otherwise, he should buy a new computer. It doesn t have to be high end to run CoD 2 on high details. Just one smart move is needed to have ultra-fast pc for low money. I recommend Athlon 64 2800+, 1 gig of kingmax ram, asus a8n sli premium... that s not expensive PC and it is possible to overclock 2800+ to 3000+ or even more very easily.

my computer runs fine on cod2 and its 4 years old (I have changed motherboard), I wouldnt overclock it, my mate did that his computer gave errors and wouldnt work. My graphics card is a Nvidia FX 5200, but if I had money i'd buy a new one.

I FX5200 is actually an inferior card compared to GeForce 4Ti. The only good card in the FX series is perhaps 5700 and 5900 Ultra cards. If you are buying a new video card, I highly recommend you to buy 6600GT or a 6800GT. I am using a 6200AGP card, and I dont have any problems with this, and it runs Call of Duty 2 just perfectly. and my card costs about $94.

Yup, I'm with Chandu on this. The FX series 5900 256mb overclock card is a good midrange priced card that should cost under a hundred bucks, but I'll stick with my GeForce 6600GT :) The 6600GT would give you the best bang for your buck...

You got a 6600GT man?? Good on you... I am yet to try COD2 on 6200, but I am pretty sure there will a huge boost in performence from 5500. I mean, 5500 has a 3D mark score of 216 (!), and 6200 has an average score of 1010...decent enough for $90.

That s something what I said, my friend... But he has a brand name computer. It s not easy to upgrade it. He would need great experience for that.

Yes Chandu!:) I went from a geforce 420mx to a Radeon 9200se, then to a bfg fx5900oc then finally I got my 6600GT about four months ago.:naughty: Just the difference I saw going from a fx5900oc to a 6600gt was astounding. I hear the entire nvidia 6000 series is really good so your card should be killer to!!:) :eek:

Branded names are more difficult to upgrade as they sometimes need special memory, the AGP port might be the older AGP 1, which will not support the latest cards, the PSU might need uprating as well. You need to find out all the details of your system first, memory type,mobo type,cpu size, bios date, etc. etc. and then try and find out if a new Graphics card etc. is compatible.
