You should wait until that unoptimized piece of do0-do0 gets patched up. You should be able to handle it at 1280x1024 without a problem, but not with all eye-candy turned up.

Its not clear - do you get lag when playing the campaign? Do you only get lag when you are playing on line? Or are you just worried about getting lag if you buy the game?

Your graphics card should be plenty for the low resolution you are using. Your cpu is a little light, a 2.7GHz dual core, but it should be able to handle the campaign at 1280x1024.

the main thing I'd suggest is a new processor. your 770 would handle any Athlon II.

the 4870 is ok for now (basically a 5770 minus DX11.) especially at your resolution

i already bought the game but i get lag in in camping and also multi player
i did not had these issue with all other cod before

i mean when i play camping the lag is just much
and in multi its lag also and i don't get it because i have 1mb connection
if the processor is the problem i can get new one no problem for me but i don't wanna the game lag

i can get amd 955 or amd 965

but is it gonna be supported for my motherboard well i know its am3 ready but is gonna be problem to put amd 955 or 965 on these board

If you're lagging a little in the campaign, it might be your cpu is holding you back, or maybe you have too much other stuff running. Check your cpu utilization using Task Manager while playing the game.

Your fine, your CPU may need to get upgraded though. I suggest, if your budget oriented, the X3 445 Rana. If not budget then the 955.

i did and i found its 99% when i run the game


for the gpu card well i disabled full screen in the game and then open the ccc and made it side by side so i can play and watch the gpu acivity i found its 42 to52% with 62temp but when i puse the game and press the gpu i see 60 to 77% acivity with the 62 temp

Yeah, your CPU probably is what is lagging you.

Oh another budget oriented suggestion if you already have a cooler, get the Phenom II X3 740. Great CPU plus it has got the chance to unlock. Especially with the UD3.

i don't have cooler so i guess i go with 955 or 965 so is it gonna support my mother board with no problems right ?

and which is better preformance 955 or 965 ?

Well both the 740 and 955 and 965 will support on that board fine. All are AM3 socket. The 955 and 965 are the same performance, one is just a higher stock clock. But that really doesn't matter. Just get the 955.

may be a bit advanced but have you tryed unlocking your athlon 7750? if the motherboards bios permits that is. heard some of them can be sleeper quads. just a thought tho.

the 955 is a good cpu that should see you for a year or two easily.

so both 955 and965 can oc to the same speed like 3.8 for example with no problems ?

i mean the only differance is the stock speed right ?

The difference is that the batches of 965s tested out better than the batches of chips that were designated 955.

In general, they probably have the same overhead, as they're made from the same mold (as it were). Through testing, the ones designated 965 were found to have slightly higher average quality, while the 955s were not quite as good on average.

Since they're pretty much the same chip, you should be able to get them both to about the same max speed, though it will depend somewhat on the specific individual chip that you get. For this reason, the 955 is a better value if you plan on overclocking.

Coldsleep gave you the long answer . . . which is why the definitive short answer is "Maybe".

Right now, CoD:BO doesn't like duals. My brother has a Phenom II @ 3.0, and framerates are very inconsistent. I imagine after a few months and a patch or two, it might get better. As Two says, "maybe". :) 

To be honest, if you're looking to upgrade, I'd go for the Athlons right now, or wait until Bulldozer hits. I'm thinking it's going to push the PII's cost down a bit, and that would be the time to buy. The PII is a solid performer, and should be able to hold out for a good while, IMO. I could be entirely wrong though, both Intel and AMD have done things I don't understand in the past :)

I've heard that Black Ops is a laggy PoS on the PC from a few. Never tried it on the PC, only on PS3.

update : well i got amd 955 x4 today and its seems it fixed the issue i had with lag
first when i run the cpu the game was still lag alittle but after half hour the game worked perfectly at high max sitting with 75 fps well i guess the game need x3 or x4 cors when it comes to amd
well thanks every body for helping i guess i will need cooler for these so i can over clock it with no problems.... any idea? i never tried over clock before but it always nice to try it i guess

Well the 3-4 cores allowed you to multi-task better as more cores allows for more tasks to be able to done with the more cores. Since your 2-3 cores can run the game, while one or two is left for you to perform other tasks.

Umm the stock cooler will be good enough for now, try ocing with that first before getting a cooler. Once you get a cooler I suggest the Hyper 212+, it's only 25$!

We tend not to handhold OCers from the gitgo. It takes a bit of investment of your time . . . and if you do that, we'll be happy to help you through roguh spots. Well, not me - I don't speak AMD very well . . . but you can start your journey here:

Umm Well he started you off. I'll just give you an idea since I oc'd my 955 as well. But you should remember I used an older board. The 790FX-GD70 umm, you basically go into your bios and up the multiplier, then up the voltage if you need to. That's really all you do. But it takes a while to get a hang of.

AND THEN PUT THE VCORE TO 1.6.

No just kidding. Read up on the tutorials, it's going to take effort on your part to learn how to get a safe and stable overclock.
