I think you're gonna need both a CPU and GPU upgrade if you want it to run decently.

CODMW2 is a graphics intensive game that can put some of the best machines to shame. Like the others above me stated, it will play alright on low. I don't know what kind of motherboard you have but if its something decent then a CPU upgrade might do the trick. If you have a PCI-E slot then a GPU upgrade would be feasible too. . but I would do this first, before the CPU. If you are using AGP on your MOBO then maybe its time to get a "barebones" system (motherboard/cpu/case/) and throw in your other components to have a really nice system.

Other than that, it depends on the quality level you want to play the game on. If you are satisfied with low/med-low , then yeah you should be fine, but if you want to play on HIGH, then you will def. need an upgrade.
