    I know its a laptop, but the other games i have played run just as fine... i have a pentium celeron mobile 1.5 i got it on black friday... here are some more specs
    ATI Radeon Express 200M
    512mb ddr memory
    60GB Hard drive, 5200 rpm (i know this is kinda slow too...)
    If i get another stick of 512mb of ram do you guys think it make my games run faster?

    I'm not completely sure but I think your Celeron is the problem.
  5. Though a cellery does suck, its most definately his Xpress200. I'm pretty sure that the 200 is the new version of the 9200(IE: crap).

    COD2 only gets about 20-30 FPS(1024x768) on my 6600GT

    We are talking about COD 1 right? Not the new one.
