    I've been looking towards getting the new call of duty 4 game for my pc and I just printed out my computer specs and compared it to the game specs and I think Im good to get it except for my video card. It says I need at least a Radeon 9800pro and i have, i guess, a Radeon X300 SE card for my primary and secondary display adapter on my xp. Do I need a new card and if i do how much will it cost me?

    You don't really need the new card it should be alright, unless you want to play it on high settings and you'll need an high end video card.

    btw
    you can also go to www.srtest.com and see if your system can run it.

    You video card meets the minimum requirements, thats good, however the X300SE is way underpower to handle this game on high settings, and you will expect the lag on gameplay

    If you really want to run COD4 on high settings and a fast performance

    you need a

    Dual Core Cpu (like Athlon X2 or Core 2 Duo)
    2 GBs of ram
    a 7900 or more for NVIDIA or ATI X1900 or more

    Im kinda low on money so what options do i have to reduce lag the most for a budge. I of coarse want to play the online multiplayer so i want to limit the lag as much as i can, but i defiently cant afford a new computer or anything of that expense right now. I need like a $250 dollar maximum upgrade. Im not looking to play on the max settings just have moderate level settings with low lag.

    You don't really need to upgrade your video card, everything else is fine, however, 512 MB is not enough to run the game well, thats why,

    You need at least 1 GB of ram, the more ram you have, the more performance your game will be.

    Add 1 GB of ram, and you'll see the big difference.

    If you are not sure what ram are you using, go to this site
