The 5450 is a very low end card as well as your CPU being low end as well. All those games that run like a charm are pretty ancient. Upgrade your hardware.

I've had this problem, too. :heink:  I noticed that it started when I installed Catalyst 12.7 drivers. But back when I was using 11.7 (I think?) the game played smoothly. If you really want to play the game, you could roll back drivers, I guess? But then, the setback that that would cause other games (the current drivers really boost performance on the latest games) cancel out the pros. :no: 

Besides, your hardware is a little old, already. Maybe it's time for an upgrade? :)

Simple answer is the HD 5450 is not meant for gaming.
Try to get at least HD 6670 or HD 7750 if you're on a budget.

Yes. But sometimes I think the drivers just mix up things. I'm sure an HD 5450 can handle CODBO; it's not really a very demanding title. But I really think it's the drivers messing it up. At least that's what happened to me before.

And this. There are HD 7750s out there that sell for less than $100. Really, the best thing to do right now would be to upgrade. :)

Yeah, and you always trust what you see on YouTube? That is your mistake. The 5450 is a garbage card, sorry, it is.
