A 6200 or a 6600 regardless of how much memory, regardless of what clock rates and with any processor in a motherboard that doesn't even have AGP will NEVER run COD 4.

You never mentioned your processor but I suspect that its junk considering the motherboard.

I'm sorry but there is no point in trying, I felt the same when I had a 64MB 7300 LE and I was trying to get the what ever I can out of it till at the end I realized that I need a new PC. I tried 6 series cards but they are way too outdated, I use them as paper weights, I have one on my desk right now.

Invest a good $500 in a budget gaming rig and you can play everything, see the recommendations on this website.

If you are talking about the onboard geforce 6200, it was made as part of the chipset and has only 4shader cores, there are no cores to unlock.

The pci 6200 might be able to however.

You are better off running the first call of duty game. It was the best of the series anyway and the graphics in that game are decent even by today's standards.

Even if it is the discrete PCI version, it's as horrible, so you should either stick to old games or get a whole new PC.

Good luck finding a pci 6600 bios however, if it even exists.

hello and yes i run call of duty 4 and 5 (the zombie maps work best) and even play online on HIGHEST (cpu based not GPU) settings thats 1280x800 res and all textures at EXTRA but anti-aliasing and other gpu needy things make the FPS go way down

i run it around 45-50 FPS on a P4 3.2Ghz and 4gb ram

this is also thru a dvi-hdmi cord to a 32" monitor

so yea the geforce 6200 is great but i wants to run black ops

Black ops runs fine on my living room pc, its winxp-pro, 939-x2-4400+@2.5ghz paired with a hd-4870 512mb card, 46" 1080p lcd tv.

On another thread someone wanted a cheap htpc pc. I swapped the 4670 for the 5770 to make a budget gaming pc.

You might want to substitute something like a antec 650 or corsair 600 watt and a case without a power supply. I had it configured already and was lazy and copied and pasted.

If your current case is ok, this system should be fairly low power, there is a good chance it will work ok with your current case/power supply.

Without the case/ps and hdd and dvd rw its Subtotal: $234.96 ($204.96 after rebates) for the board/cpu/cooler/memory/video card.

(the 5770 when o/c is close to the o/c 4890 shown) The regor when o/c to 3.6ghz is a bit faster than the phenomIIx2 shown.

The bigger the card, the more cpu power you need. The i5-2500K when overclocked is currently the fastest cpu for gaming. 570's in sli or 6950's in crossfire are needed to match this fast quad core cpu.

A pair of 460's or 6870's do pretty good too when paired with the overclocked phenomIIx4 3.4ghz o/c 3.8ghz

As you can see the price quickly skyrockets.
