So i tried out cod black ops on my computer and it seems like the fps is low even on the minimum settings...


My specs :
Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E7200 @ 2.53GHz
2 GB RAM
Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 (build 2600)
GeForce 9400 GT

Now as i don't know that much about specs and so,i'd like to ask what computer part/parts would need to be replaced to make black ops run good,maybe it's the gpu but the cpu is bad too,or would both of them need a replacement?If i change the cpu to a better one i would need to buy a new motherboard right,or no?also,if i would buy a new graphic card,can my cpu handle it?

I have a budget of around 200 euros,think you can make a semi-gaming computer out of it?

* OS: Windows® Vista/ XP / 7

* Processor:Intel® Core2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom X3 8750 or better

* Memory: 2GB

* HDD:12GB

* Video: Shader 3.0 or better 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600GT / ATI Radeon® X1950Pro or better

* Sound: DirectX 9.0c-compatible

* DirectX: 9.0c


I managed to track down the minimum requirements for the game. Oddly enough out of curiosity the site I went to told me my gaming desktop with a dual core AMD, 4gb RAM, and a GTS 250 1024mb graphics card wasn't up to the task of running this game, I'm sure I could though.

Your easiest thing would be to get a newer, better graphics card. If you can get us some system information (mostly motherboard) from what Dc3 posted we could probably make a recommendation as to the type of card.

I still don't know what the model this computer is, but I can tell you that in order to run that game you will need a minimum of a 550W PSU. To see what PSUs are compatible with the game read this.

The PSU is rated in Watts. The 230 Volts is the house voltage.

As I posted earlier, according to the manufacturer you will need at least a 550W PSU. So no, a 400W PSU isn't going to have the wattage necessary for this program.
