Call of Duty Ghosts - bought the game, extremly lag. HELP!

Hi guys,
I bought COD Ghosts, and i tried to play it, it's impossible... Too laggy, can't even aim weapon with half of second delay. I've tried all tips i saw on you tube and forums, don't work. I'm starting to think that my video card isn't sufficient for this game.

My specs are:
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU 550 @ 3.20GHz
CPU Speed: 3.2 GHz
RAM: 7.1 GB
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 420
Sound Card: NVIDIA High Definition Audio

Do I need to buy stronger video card, or there's something I can change in game video settings?
Thanx!

  1. You definitely need a new GPU. CPU isn't your strong side either, but better GPU will improve things by far.
  2. Definitely GPU, that thing was extremely low end three years ago, and in all likelihood its an even older card rebranded.
  3. +1 your GPU is not even close to the official minimum requirements (GT 450) to play it

  5. Thanx guys. So GPU is the key....I new it would give me problem.... I want to buy one that won't give me problems for at least next 3 years. Any suggestions which one for these kind of specs?
  6. There are GPUs that will perform well for the next 3 years, but your CPU will bottleneck them. Your limit should be GTX 660 or HD 7850 for best performance/price ratio. Also it depends on the games you plan to play, if they are more GPU demanding then you can get a better GPU, but if they are CPU demanding you'll be bottlenecked and better take a cheaper GPU and save money for CPU upgrade.
