Default Is this a fair statement?

The E2200 (2.2ghz Pentium Dual), can run COD4 on High with a 8800GS.

Lol, okay what about a 2.4ghz Pentium Dual at stock with a 9600GSO, i really have to know if it can play it well.

and

is a 430w Thermaltake PSU going to be enough to power a 9600GSO and Pentium Dual?

I did the same with a 9600xt....

However you don't need to worry about your CPU being too weak, mainly your GPU

thats not true, when i had my single core athlon 4000+ and my 7950gt i could just run medium, oncei got my q6600 i was able to max it with the 7950gt, you need atleast duel core. call of duty 4 is a preaty cpu dependant game.

Wow... Didn't see that coming, because on my friends rig, he had an 3200+ and went to a Socket 939 Opty 165 and his COD4 performance didn't increase much (he reused his video card though)

idk...
