Default Help me find a video card!

I would really appreciate it if someone could find a video card that could run Call of Duty 4 for PC for me. I ran a diagnostics test on my PC and it said my current video card wouldn't work. Everything else was sufficient. Thanks.

What's your budget and as allendale said, what slot do you have? Judging by your system I assume you have either PCI Express X16 or AGP.

Ya, that 8800 that allen linked to would be plenty to run COD4, that's the card I started with playing COD on, great card. It won't run newer games maxed, but it'll play them decently.

The problem you're going to run into is not your GPU, but your CPU. Newer games are going to rip that 3700 to shreds..

This card is pretty good. If you don't get it in stock. I can sell you mine. I've only had it for 2 months. It's $114.99. But so much better than your current card. I'll give you a cheaper price of course.
