Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

Minimum MW2 System Requirements

The minimum system requirements for the PC version of Modern Warfare 2 have been released:

OS: Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 (Windows 95/98/ME/2000 are unsupported)
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 3.2 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 3200+ processor or better supported
Memory: 1 GB RAM
Graphics: 256 MB NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT or better or ATI Radeon 1600XT or better
DirectX: Microsoft DirectX(R) 9.0c
Hard Drive: 12GB of free hard drive space
Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card
Internet: Broadband connection required for Multiplayer Connectivity. Internet Connection required for activation.

The system requirements seem to be almost identical to Call of Duty 4, so if you are able to run that with decent frames, you should have no problem running MW2 on your PC. The recommended system requirements should be available soon.

As a side note, it seems that the game requires you to have an internet connection to activate the game. Hardly surprising, since MW2 has been partly integrated with Steam.

Call of Duty: Ghosts is an upcoming first-person shooter developed by Infinity Ward. The new next-gen engine delivers stunning levels of immersion and performance to call of duty: ghosts, while maintaining the speed and fluidity of 60 FPS on all platforms. Ghosts features new weapons, perks, killstreaks and multiplayer maps.
