My system specs are :
1G ram
Windows XP
250G harddrive
19" monitor
2.8GHz dual core
300 watt PSU :( 
I'm just going to play COD. Can anyone suggest a cheap graphics card that can run COD without lag no matter what or something. Plus what about my PSU? How can I improve it. Thanks !!!

1) what is your budget?
2) whats the name of your motherboard? you have PCI-E slot?
3) What is the name of your processor? like is it a pentium D or a C2D?
4) Ram is ultra cheap right now... another gig will do you wonders.
5) It is highly likely you will need to replace the power supply as well, depending on the answers to #2 and #3

I was worried the PSU might not fit....but its only 1 cm longer than the stock PSU and should fit fine. The rest of the dimensions are the same
