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!

Usually involves...

1 uninstall old drivers.
2 Turn off PC
3 remove old card
4 put new card in
5 turn on pc (ignore found new hardware message)
6 install latest drivers
7 restart PC.

You most likely have some of these slots:

800px-AGP_slot.jpg


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

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.
