Hi guys i hope you can help, I have just purchased and installed Call of Duty 4, i had to install a new graphics card and all was going well but then the game freezes for a second every so often is there any reason for this.

sounds like it's page filing how much ram do you have?

if you posted your pc specs and operating system may help more.

You should now your CPU, RAM, and GPU, if you intend to use your PC for games. Every game has a minimum and recommended specification (see the back of the game box). Really, your PC should be well better than the recommened in order to run smoothly.

Start > Run > dxdiag

That page shows your Processor (CPU) and Memory. Then click the Display tab for your GPU (which you've just bought, anyway!).

Minimum specs for Call of Duty 4 are
2.4Ghz cpu
Nvidia Gf 6600 graphics card
512mb ram

So graphics card should be ok, looks like your cpu might not be powerful enough?

Call of Duty 4

Recommended Specs

CPU: 2.4 GHz dual core or better is recommended
RAM: 1GB for XP; 2GB for Vista is recommended
Harddrive: 8GB of free hard drive space
Video card: 3.0 Shader Support recommended. Nvidia Geforce 7800 or better or ATI Radeon X1800 or better

Minimum Specs

CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 2.4 GHz or AMD(R) Athlon(TM) 64 2800+ processor or any 1.8Ghz Dual Core Processor or better supported
RAM: 512MB RAM (768MB for Windows Vista)
Harddrive: 8GB of free hard drive space
Video card (generic): NVIDIA(R) Geforce(TM) 6600 or better or ATI(R) Radeon(R) 9800Pro or better


I see you're running it at 800 x 600, but even so...... Your old Pentium 4 CPU is way below the minimum spec. Your RAM is the absolute minimum needed to run the game. Your GPU (ie that 7300 GT) isn't far above the minimum, either. You need a much better PC to run the game smoothly.

Harsh, but true, jonny! Anyway, do you not look at the box when you buy PC games?
