I am looking for the cheapest MB, CPU & Ram combo for my brother to be able to play MW2 his pc doesn't cut it. I have a Geforce 8600 GTS for him and I think that will be able to run it at 1280x1024 resolution at decent settings if the cpu and ram is right. The video card is a PCI-express card.

As far as Intel or AMD I am not picky I just want the best value that will run this fine.

Currently he has a AMD 64 2800+ with AGP video slot and 1 gb ram and and a 6600GT and its just doesnt cut it.

Thanks all look forward to the help.

Here's the specs for MW2.

CPU ( Minimum) AMD Athlon 64 3200+ processor or better supported

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... ---$50

Video Card ( Minimum )

Minimum: 256 MB NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT or better or ATI Radeon 1600 XT or better

Your video card should cover the minimum requirements, but if you're looking for a little upgrade you could try maybe this.

Also $50.

And as far as your ram goes it only requires 1 gig to run, but that doesn't mean that it will be enough to run it like you want. Maybe a 2 gig stick will do ya good. Without knowing what your mother board is I can't exactly tell you what will be best. But I suggest either going to ( suprise suprise ) www.tigerdirect.com or posting what kind of mobo he has.

Hope this helps.

Do you ( or he ) want to stick with the agp type of mobo, or get a sli or sli express?

As cheap as possible its a B-day gift for my little brother to upgrade his pc to be able to play CoD MW2 at 1280x1024 at high settings. There is a possibility that the video card won't cut it. So may also need a cheap video card suggestion.

Well, tbh...."cheap" and "on high settings" don't exactly mesh. Would you be looking for something you put together yourself, or something that you can get prebuilt in the mail? Even a rough gues-timate would really help me. Like if you said around $400. I could work with that.

Right but at this low a resolution 400 seems steep for for a mb processor ram and possibly cheap video card if the one I have doesn't cut it. I mean for 400 I can almost get an I7 920, MB and ram.

Not sure that would run it. Can't seem to find if it has a PCI Express slot or not. I may have to look at the used market for a Motherboard, Processor & Ram combo.
