If you played Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare without problems, then you will be able to play the newer version of the game (Call of Duty 6 (COD 6): Modern Warfare 2) for PC. For PS3 and Xbox 360 gaming consoles, there’s actually no problem encountered so far for as long as the gaming consoles are in good working conditions. But for the new player wanting to play the game in a Windows environment, here is the suggested minimum PC setup or requirements:
Minimum PC System Requirements / Specifications
Processor: 2.4 GHz dual core or better is recommended
Display Card: 3.0 Shader Support recommended. Nvidia Geforce 7800 or better or ATI Radeon X1800 or better
Memory: 1024 MB RAM
Free Disk Space: 8GB
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 7
You might have noticed that Windows XP and Win 7 are the chosen Operating Systems. Does it mean it say that it does not run on Vista? No… Vista is known to be slow at games. Remember, a game of this magnitude, requiring a lot of processing and GPU power will probably run better on faster Operating Systems like Windows 7 Ultimate and XP. This video game is not designed for Linux-based systems but you can try and use WINE if this game will load and run without problems. We cannot guarantee its success though but we’d appreciate if you could tell us all about it through the comments section if this actually work.
