COD Black Ops in 1600*900 - What do I need?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

If I want to run Black Ops in 1600*900 under Windows XP, then,

1) Will my Radeon 4870 1GB be enough for that?

2) What is the cheapest Intel processor and what is the cheapest AMD processor that would run Black Ops in 1600*900 with my above mentioned video card?

I would like to have at least 25 fps of course, 30 is better.

Unfortunately I still could not find a PC demo of the game...

Thanks

1600x900? Do you mean 1600x1050?

And your 4870 will be enough for either resolutions, and an Athlon II X4 overclocked will keep you above 30 FPS for sure, however I reccomend an Intel i5 because Black Ops is more CPU heavy than usual, and the i5 will last you much longer than the Athlon, although being more expensive.
Puny Power!

Thanks. No, I have a Samsung 20" 16:9 widescreen TFT monitor that has a native resolution of 1600x900.

My rig has an Intel E7600 processor (Core 2 Duo 3.06GHz, 1066fsb). Would that be enough?

Black Ops isn't very hardware-intenstive at all. Your setup is plenty for the game. If you're already prepared to buy parts, why don't you buy the game, try it, and upgrade hardware if you're not happy?
