While playing BO cpu usage is 100% whereas gpu usage is around 50-60%. I have a G620 and a GTX 460 hawk and I am definitely sure I can run this game at almost max. After some googling, I found out that this was a very common issue but couldn't find a solution.
So anyone have any solution ?
Game is stuttering like hell !

well it is only a dual core with no hyper threading. i would say an overclock may be needed or it could possibly just be a game problem. i know any cod game on my system it barely uses any of my cpu

Looks like you have a cpu bottleneck. I don't think you can OC that cpu either. What kind of fps are you getting on what settings?

"Call of Duty: Black Ops can take advantage of four cores and is undoubtedly optimized for the current crop of chips. In fact, the game relies so heavily on all four cores that we found it almost unplayable on even the fastest dual-core CPU. "

Well that's a shame. Guess I'm just stuck then

Well guess what, after installing the patch everything is fine. No stutters. Constant 60+ fps and minimum 40. This is great. CPU usage is still high though, 85-100% but not constant 100%
Already on the WMD mission

No, not a bit. Both mobo and cpu don't allow overclocking.
