I'm doing a really budget upgrade for a friend who would like to be able to play CoD Black Ops. His current specs are:
Pentium D E2140 @ 1.6GHz (Needs Upgrade) 2x 1GB Kingston DDR2 800 (Also Going to Upgrade) Intel DG33TL Motherboard (Supports all 775 CPU's to Date) 512mb Gainward 8600GT (Also Going to Upgrade) 400 Watt Aopen PSU (Also Going to Upgrade)
The Parts I've chosen for the Upgrade are as follows:
Intel Pentium D E6700 @ 3.2GHz Another 2x 1GB Kingston DDR2 800 1GB Inno3D GTS450 OC 500 Watt CoolerMaster Extreme Power PSU
He only has a 17" Monitor, so he'll be playing it at 1024x768 or thereabouts. My question is, would this machine be powerful enough to run this game at Medium-Low settings? Oh, and is the 500watt CM PSU enough to power this rig?
Any advice is welcome, but I'm on a really tight budget, so these parts were the best I could get within his price range.
PS. I only chose the GTS 450 because it costs the same as the GTS 250 here, so I thought it would be a slightly better option, I know it's not much of an Improvement on the GTS 250.

At 1024x768, the 450 will easily be able to max out the game graphics. It could probably max it at 1280x1024 too.
Yeah that PSU looks great.
Thanks for the reply, just wanted to make 100% sure before I confirm the purchase.
