Hello I have these specs:

Operating System:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
CPU:
AMD Athlon II X3 440 @3.0ghz 27 °C
Rana 45nm Technology
RAM:
4.00 GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 669MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard:
Emaxx Technologies, Inc EMX-MCP61D3-iCafe (CPU 1) 32 °C
Graphics:
1619w (1366x768@60Hz)
ATI Radeon HD 5450 1GB (Sapphire/PCPartner) 50 °C

Here is MW3 requirements:

OS: Windows® XP / Windows Vista® / Windows® 7

Processor: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6600@2.40ghz or AMD Phenom™ X38750 processor or better

Memory: 16 GB free hard drive space / 2GB RAM

Video Card: Shader 3.0 or better 256 MB NVIDIA®GeForce™ 8600GT / ATI® Radeon™ X1950 or better

Sound Card: DirectX® 9.0C or later


I noticed the requirement for MW3 for AMD CPU is a Phenom.. Mine is only Athlon X3 440. But hey, the Intel requirement says 2.40ghz and I have a processor at 3.0ghz triple core.
I can definitely play Black Ops with my specs, I wonder if it can run MW3. Please don't post answers like, "go to this website..CanYouRunIt.com if you can run it". That website is a lie.. I have a friend who has a Dual Core CPU @2.80 ghz and a Sapphire 4650 1GB and he can run Black Ops without issues.

You may notice I have a weak graphics card but I'm gonna upgrade it to a 4670 soon. And about the requirement, will it run fine on my Athlon X3 440? I can run Black Ops, which pretty much has the same system requirement for Modern Warfare 3.

If you can play Black Ops then you will be able to play MW3. It uses the same graphics engine.

Do you find it strange that both BO & MW3's AMD requirement says Phenom but I can run BO with my Athlon X3?

COD games aren't demanding. And we can expect this one to be less demanding as well since the game used the same engine since COD4 with some modifications made to it.
You can run the game okay, but not maxed out as your GPU is a slowing factor.

as above said cod isnt that demanding on low end systems but it will be low end as your gfx is pretty pants.
expect 30 fps+ but also dropouts down to 10-15fps
