I got a sort of old rig. I'm really wanting to get COD4 when it comes out. If anyone knows the system requirements it would be nice to post them. But do you guys think that this is good enough to play COD4 at about 15-20 FPS? CPU: 2.8GHZ Celeron D Socket 478 Processor RAM: 2GB DDR333 GFX: 256mb Nvidia 6600 (Not GT version) I'm thinking that my GFX card is to out of date. If you have any new GFX card suggestions I'd like to see them (only AGP card suggestions cuz I don't got PCI-E, obviously). Thanks.
I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)

I'm curious, it would help if you could post the COD4 System Specs, I didn't even know that they had been released. Without them, we can only make a very rough estimate.
You'd basically be needing mid-to-high range hardware my guess, but I'm no techie.
Most new games will run on older or slower hardware as the game producers wouyld be silly to aim a product simply at high end component owners. They simply wouldnt sell enough.
To that end your pc seems pretty much what half the people i know have and i personally think it will be able to play COD4 with reduced quality settings.

Newegg.com - XFX PVT71AYDF3 GeForce 7950GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card - Retail That's a nice AGP card.
I guess that my rig is ok then. I was thinking of getting a new GFX card. Thanks for the suggestion WindowsVistaGeek19. I think that the Nvidia 7950GT is the best AGP card from Nvidia on Newegg...is that right? ATI's best AGP is the x1900 PRO I think, I really don't know.
GeForce 7950GT or Radeon X1950 Pro. Which is better it a matter of debate. Sometimes the 7950GT is better, sometimes the X1950 Pro is better; it depends on the game. What isn't a matter of debate is that a Sapphire X1950 Pro is almost $100 cheaper than that 7950GT - Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100171L Radeon X1950PRO 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Video Card - Retail
Below that it's the GeForce 7800GS and 7600GT.

Well, your system seems "ok" but your gonna experience some lagg since your processor is an older Celeron D at 2.8GHz. Its fine if you don't have many programs running in the background. You have plenty of RAM considering that the most computer intense game that I have is Company of Heroes and it runs at 83% of 2GB. On the other hand you GC could do with an upgrade. Here are some below: Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100171L Radeon X1950PRO 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Video Card - Retail (AGP) Newegg.com - ASUS EN7600GS SILENT/HTD/512M GeForce 7600GS 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail (PCIe) Newegg.com - XFX PVT80GGHD4 GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail (PCIe) Newegg.com - GECUBE HD2900XT-VIE3 Radeon HD 2900XT 512MB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 VIVO HDCP Video Card - Retail (PCIe) Newegg.com - EVGA 768-P2-N831-AR GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail (PCIe) Newegg.com - BFG Tech BFGR76512GSOC GeForce 7600GS 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card - Retail (AGP) Newegg.com - DIAMOND X1650AGP512SB Radeon X1650PRO 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card - Retail (AGP) Make sure your power supply is powerful enough to use a new more power hungry GC. I recommend 400-500 watts with 30 amps on the 12 volt rails.
Theres always the Gecube X1950XT AGP. Newegg.com - GECUBE HX195XTGA3-D3 (R) Radeon X1950XT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 AGP 8X HDCP Video Card - Retail If you have the cash and high enough PSU for it of course..

HOLY SH*T thats a big GC. 2 FANS!!! WOW!
Thanks a lot for all the advice. The ATI x1950 PRO at Newegg.com looks like a good one to get. But I got a question to ask. It's kinda dumb but back a couple years ago I got a ATI 9500 and put it onto my motherboard. It didn't work, I put an Nvidia 5500 card in it worked fine. Do most motherboards support both ATI and Nvidia card? Do I have to worry?
