Sounds like that should work but you should probably post some more specs and see if your computer meets the minimum requirements for the game overall.

I assume you mean GHz and GB...otherwise, my Packard Bell from 1995 beats the shit out of your computer. =p

Seriously, though, you'll be fine. The engine is essentially a heavily modified Id Tech 3 engine, and it runs well on even shitty hardware. It also doesn't demand too much CPU power, and your graphics card is more than up to the task.

Hey Zam,I have ATI Radeon 5750 512mb,2gb RAM DDR3,Intel Core2Duo 2.93Ghz.Do you think it will be enough?

You could probably run two copies of it at the same time and have processing power to spare. :)

From what I've read only early installments of CoD were based on Id Tech 3. When CoD 4 came out, IW went to their own proprietary engine they called the "IW 4.0 engine". World at War used a modified version of IW 4 and Black Ops runs on a yet further enhanced version of that engine.

Source:

IW engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Call of Duty: Black Ops - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

One things for sure though, at least from my experience and others I've talked to whom have played both CoD 4 and WaW. IW manages to make much more efficient use of their engine than Treyarch has. You'd swear after playing CoD 4 then WaW, that they use two entirely different engines. CoD 4 is MUCH better optimized.

That being said, even WaW blows Medal of Honor 2010 away on optimization. MoH is just a mess with frame rates all over the place, glitchy textures and AI, and painfully obvious copied elements from MW. This is a very disappointing title.
