I have a new Asus intel-core i7 pc with 8 GB ram and 1TB hard drive at 3.4 Ghtz. I'm thinking about replace my existing video card (GT530) with a GT545. So does anyone kown how this card would handle all the COD games?

Thanks

Not worth upgrading to the GT545 from the GT530. Performance increase will only be minimal. I'd recommend a GTX460 or GTX470 if you are stripped for cash, although a GTX560Ti or GTX570 would be much more suitable. On the other hand, if you have a PCI-E slot available, a cheaper option may be to get another GT530 and run the two in SLI for the time being.

If you're going to upgrade to a GTX560, get the GTX560Ti version, not simply the GTX560. The Ti is a lot better, and actually justifies the little extra cost.

Also consider the ATI Radeon HD5850.

Also remember to check your power supply can handle what you get
