    I'm hoping someone will be kind enough to answer this question. I was thinking of buying Call Of Duty WW2 from Steam, it's 40% off. Love the Call of Duty games & since I can't race anymore till I get a new wheel, I'm wondering if my PC specs will run the game on my antique PC. Here's the system requirements for the game......
    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit or later
    • Processor: CPU: Intel® Core™ i3 3225 3.3 GHz or AMD Ryzen™ 5 1400
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 660 @ 2 GB / GTX 1050 or ATI® Radeon™ HD 7850 @ 2GB / AMD RX 550
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection
    • Storage: 90 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible---Here's my PC specs...

      OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
      Version 6.1.7600 Build 7600
      Other OS Description Not Available

      SMBIOS Version 2.5
      Windows Directory C:\Windows
      System Directory C:\Windows\system32... Don't know anything about the tech workings of PC's, but the only concern I noticed was the Processor Required & My stats of Processor. The part ..i3 3225 3.3 GHz versus mine??? Does this mean the game will not run at all?? Even with settings on LOW, or will it have stuttering or freeze ups, making it un-playable?? Thank You to anyone that can help decipher this for me.

    your old i7 should be up to the task, but what GPU are you using? looks like 2 gig VRAM is required
    and don't forget steam gives you a chance to return a game if you don't like it, or it doesn't run well on your system,

    you should be good to go
    I am running an old i5-2500 and GTX 1050ti, but even with my old GTX650ti I was able to play any game I wanted at low res, and your i7-920 should be equal or slightly better than an i3-3225

    a stock xbox 360 controller works great on PC, I highly recommend one, the aftermarket ones can be spotty on quality sometimes
