A docking station with a built in graphics card? Could you link us? Not sure how that performs through the interconnect between the laptop and docking station, but under normal conditions a GT330 would play COD games just fine. COD is not really a demanding came so a Celeron may be ok since it uses the old COD4 engine. More modern games may struggle with your CPU.

If it is the docking station shown here it will only work with that particular model notebook. Docking stations are not typically universal and you have to get the one that fits your make and model.

It is an exciting idea though having the ability to get a docking station with build in graphics.
