Specs on PC to play multiplayer COD: Black Ops 2

Hi all. I'm looking to play Black Ops 2 online multiplayer on my PC but wanted to make sure my system will be capable of running the game before I went ahead and purchased it and a wireless gaming controller.

Here are the specs on the computer I will be using:

Intel(R) Core™ i7-950 3.06 GHz 8M Intel Smart Cache LGA1366
6GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 1GB 16X PCI Express
500GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD
HIGH DEFINITION ON-BOARD 7.1 AUDIO


I'm seeing youtube videos of people playing this with a GT 240 but is this going to be an issue?

  1. i forgot to add that i do see the GeForce GT 240 listed here as a video card that will meet system requirments:

    http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=3685&canMyGpuRunIt=Call%20of%20Duty:%20Black%20Ops%202

    and I do see video online of people playing black ops 2 with this video card, but it seems like it's under minimum requirements according the the official minimum requirements info. weird. any advice?
  2. One additional question...

    If you were to upgrade the video card, what would you get? if i upgrade i think i'd like to get something that will definitely play the next call of duty.
  3. the gt 240 is garbage and doent meet minimum requirements by some margin if you want a playable frame rate.
    its about the same as a 9500gt so barely scrapes 30 fps. the minimum i would recommend you spend is £90 or $130 on something like a 650 ti or hd 7770. this will play any cod game you throw at it at high settings with x4 aa. and give a minimum of 60 fps.

    you have the basics of a very good gaming machine so upgrading the gfx to as high as possible would be a great idea. if you can afford more then a gtx670 or hd 7950 would be my prefered options. you could even sli/crossfire them 2 high end cards without any fear of bottlenecking the i7 950...
    if your not overclocking it then get a good cooler and turn the wick up to 3.8 (stock volts should handle that bump ok so no need for any voltage tweaking)

    the reason im recomending a higher than what you have card is the games packet data is connected to the games fps so the more fps you can get (up to 100 fps) the better as the game will run on anywhere between 30 and 100 packets. the higher the packet count the more accurate the game will place your enemies and the faster you will see them to kill them.
    1s you get over 100 fps the game starts using filler frames so 100 fps is the minimum you would prefer to aim for.
  4. Thanks so much for all of this information! I recently got rid of my ps3 and am craving someonline multiplayer FPS action.

    Will installing a new gtx 670 simply be as easy as popping out the old card and popping in the new card, restarting the machine, and install the driver for the new card? i figured that the existing card is probably on the garbage end of the spectrum.

    Should I be looking at the GeForce GTX 650 Ti or the GTX 670?

    i'm VERY new to pc gaming so am not doing any overclocking etc. in fact, Call of Duty is probably the only game I'm planning on playing on the PC so I figure I might as well upgrade the graphic card to something that will last for a few generations of Call of Duty.


    ps. what are people's thoughts on purchasing video cards used on ebay? i'm noticing that the GTX 650 is going for around $130ish while the GTX 670 is in the $300 area.

  5. So I pulled the trigger on a new GeForce GTX 650 Ti, so on Wednesday my setup will be

    Intel(R) Core™ i7-950 3.06 GHz 8M Intel Smart Cache LGA1366
    6GB RAM
    GeForce GTX 650 Ti
    500GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD
    HIGH DEFINITION ON-BOARD 7.1 AUDIO


    should i be good to go for the upcoming Call of Duty this winter, and maybe even the one after that?
  6. thats cool... the 650 ti will handle it very well. my bro inllaw just got 1 for his birthday and he's very happy with it. its a good card at a fair price.
