    3. Put card in the slot that it fits in.
    4. Plug in PC
    5. Turn on PC

    The box should also have a picture somewhere and instructions on where and what slot to fit it in.

    power off, unplug, open up, remove old gfx card if any, plug in new one, make sure your BIOS know not to use onboard graphics, plug in, power on, download new drivers (if not already), install new drivers, restart, play CoD4 with meh! [​IMG]

    Hopefully your motherboard has the correct slot for your graphics card. If not, then you're screwed.

    You most likely have some of these slots:

    You probably either need the first one, or the maroon colored one.

    1) Walk/Drive to store
    2) pick up game
    3) go to cashier
    4) tell cashier you want the game
    5) give cashier legal tender equal to cost of game
    6) take game
    7) walk/drive back home
    8) open box
    9) install game
    10) enjoy!

    Use CoD4 private servers obviously if you pirate it or buy it... I'd recommend you buy it, but people on the private servers are usually nicer. Don't forget to play the (short) story mode. But you can't play it without a crack or the real game. The story mode is very interesting.
