Hi,

I've checked the specifications of your PC and it appears your motherboard doesn't support AGP or PCI-Express cards, it's PCI only. PCI has been dead for video cards for a long time, AGP has mostly followed suit.

Basically you're just not going to be able to run COD4 on this computer without changing the motherboard.
Some websites do still have compatible motherboards but add that cost to the cost of a decent AGP graphics card
and you have to start wondering whether it's worth spending money on a PC as old as yours. In my opinion is not worth spending the money, it would be much better to save your money and get a newer PC.

Do you have any suggestions on a new computer with a modest price?



EDIT: I would also prefer them to be Dell considering I can get a discount on Dell computers.

A modest price for me would be anywhere around 0 - 2000 dollars. If there is something else that you recommend that is out of my price range then suggest that too.

Well there's the XPS 630 that comes with SLi/Crossfire cards, 8GB RAM, Vista 64 and no monitor. The setup can be customised to a certain extent as with most Dells.

Maybe the 730x with the new Intel I7 Quad core processor in, again customisable.

Have a look around the Dell store, customise some systems.

I think I am going to go with the XPS 630 like you suggested. I got hooked on the amount of ram and disk space. Considering mine only has 32g, 500 gigabytes of space is a shocker. Thankyou Zeus Gb for aiding me on my search. :) You have been a great help on choosing a new computer for me.

You could save a lot of money if you just build it yourself, and you can choose the best parts, too. I built mine at newegg for $800, monitor included.
