At the very least a 9800gt should do it. But I would go for the GTS250.

Absolute Minimum will be a GTS250/9800GT
You will get 125 Frames only with no antialaising and dynamic lights disabled

A GTX260 will get you 110 frames with everything maxed right out.
Drop back to 2x AA and you will get 125.

Ive had both these cards in two seperate systems @ 1680x1050 and these are the results ive got from these cards, bear in mind the frame rates Im telling you are the baseline figures, eg. 125 is the lowest they will drop to, my gtx260 will actually go up around 170 frames but I like to find the lowest frame rate and lock the game to that figure, eg /com_maxfps 125. Gets rid of that stuttery feel IMHO.

A Good dual core is all you will need cpu wise E7500 or above, the games only threaded for 2 cores. You wont be CPU bound with an E7500. Bear in mind though while you will get 125 frames in multiplayer, singleplayer is far hungrier on CPU. I only get 60-80 frames in single player with an E8400@ 3.8Ghz.

Good low latency ddr2 at 800mhz ram wise.

The above will give you what you desire at a good price BUT you will be locking yourself into socket 775 architecture with no real upgrade path past a q9650.

In my honest opinion do yourself a favour and wait 3 months for prices on the new I5's to drop a bit, also with ATI's new cards coming out the price of there 4890's should drop even further as they runout stock. For the same price bracket as building with the above components you will pick up a system with 20-30% more grunt. With the extra power you should be able to hit 125 frames with Modern Warfare 2!

Hope the info helps. See you on the battlefield :)

125 fps is not 60 good enough ?

I have no idea why in the world you would want that many frames, all you will do is gett a tone of taring and have to turn on V-sync or else suffer the image messing up.

I have played CoD4 maxed out with a 8400GS, a single core CPU at 3.0 Ghz and 1BG of ram at around 1400 res and been well over playable frames. Hell if you turn down some of the settings I can play it on my 1920X1080 screen with no big deal.

COD4 is based on the quake graphics engine, Like all games based on this engine its optimal frame rate is around 125 frames a second.
While you cant physically see the difference, it provides an undeniable advantage in multiplayer and allows you to interact with the game world far more precisely and accurately. (ever had trouble climbing out of a window or climbing/jumping a wall?)

For the average player its no real big deal, for someone in competition, or a competitive person by nature, every advantage helps.

I have never had a trouble with windows or ladders before. Also any advatage you got from that many frames would be lose to tearing unless you have a seriously fast refreshing monitor.

My new 2ms response 60hz has no trouble displaying these frames.
My old 5ms response had no troubles either.

60FPS is the best possible framerate you can get dont bullshit anymore with these 125fps its just small difference from 60fps that you will never see

200FPS is around the best I was getting, and I can communicate that with less colourful language. :non:

tonkat thnx for ur useful answers i think i ll go for the GTS250 as long as it can handle cod4 at 125 am not planing to run anti alliasing and dynamic lights .and for the future games like cod mw2 i ll just put another 250 in my Nvidia sli motherboard and they should be able to handle it well.s

To OP:
1. There's no point in 125 fps if your monitor only refreshes at 60fps.
2. Minimum fps required for food gameplay is 30 fps, and you won't even notice the difference beyond 60 fps
3. You'll need a GTX260 or 4870 or higher with LOWERED details/resolutions to reach 125 fps. I had to use dual 9800GTXs in SLi to reach ~ 120fps at 1280x1024 with everything on max.
4. 9800GTXs/GTX+/GTS250s or 4850 will net you around 60-80fps

9800GT ~ 4830
GTS250 = 9800GTX/GTX+ ~ 4850

wow your an angry chap!

You dont seem to understand the concept at play here. Its not a visual issue, its a feel and reaction time issue. The difference is slight yes but it is an advantage none the less.

Have you ever attempted multiplayer at over 100fps?

If you have the hardware to do it I propose this experiment.

Play at that rate for the next week solid, then switch back to 60fps and play for a few hrs.

Trust me you will change your tune on the matter.

Is that when the GPU eats anything you feed it without lunching the CPU? :whistle:  (Sorry, couldn't resist)

Most LCD has refresh rate at 60hz so there is no point in 125fps because you will not see a difference. Only difference you will see if you using a crt or new samsung lcd 2233rz that has refresh up to 120hz.

guys if u don't know anything abt gaming pls don't post.

in games like Call of duty 4 which is based off the quake engine, its not only about what u see .. if u have a higher frame rate that means better Los better accuracy a little higher jumps etc ..

to who ever is saying you don't need more than 60FPS, that is a lie. since cod4 is based off the q3 engine, you need as much fps as possible. why? because the more FPS you get the more packets you send to the server therefore better hit detection, less recoil, bullets shoot faster, etc. here this article explains it all.

YES you can get screen tearing but input lag will be less./

^ Never knew 125fps made such a big difference over 60fps.

I would suggest quad gtx295!! That will give you insane frames and even possibly open up predictions for future enemy movements.

read the article lol.. and it's true, thats how the quake 3 engine works. don't believe me? why don't you go play with 60 FPS and shoot and M4, then play at 200 and you will definitely hear the difference in terms of the RoF. 125 fps = faster movement, you get a different feel of the game over 60fps.. play the game before you say stuff like that

gtx 260 will max out cod4.

im running everything on maxed out with an i7 rig and a 23inch monitor at 1920x1080 averaging 120-160 fps....dips to about 100ish when in intense combat
