If you have HD 2000, then all low at 1280x720 and may be 40-60 fps according to notebookcheck… If you really have HD 4000 with dual channel RAM, then tweaked high at 1280x720 and 40-60 fps (which is what I get)… If single channel RAM, stick to medium at 1366x768… Oh and don't bother with MSAA at all regardless of which chip you have…

Sorry but according to notebookcheck, with that GMA chipset, you're looking at like 9-14 fps on low at 800x600 i.e. just unplayable…

Which CPU will be good for my CPU?

I'm assuming you meant GPU… The strongest GPUs your CPU can handle with negligible bottleneck are GT 545, GT 640, Radeon HD 6670, Radeon R7 240… All those GPUs can actually run this game maxed out even on 1920x1080 and x2 MSAA at 60 fps easily…

upsurge
06:29 Oct-30-2014

Yeah, I also suggest a RAM upgrade… Since you have a 32-bit OS, 4 GB RAM is the maximum it will recognize and use… But this game is not really RAM intensive… It will run on only 1 GB and you can actually max it out on just 2 GB RAM no problem…

Not a bad choice… But the weakest CPU you should get for GTS 450 is Core 2 Duo E8400 or Phenom II X2 560… Recommended is a Core 2 Quad or Phenom Quad… Also, GTS 450 is a wattage guzzler… Make sure your PSU can handle it…

What matters is both Wattage and Amps… For GTS 450, it is recommended you have at least 450W and 24 Amp… Combine that with CPU and other stuff and it is advised you have at least 450W and 28 Amps… What model PSU do you have now anyway…?

Yeah you need at least 450W and 28 Amps if you plan on GTS 450… I would recommend 450W and 30 Amps just to be on the safe side…

I have seen this game run on a Pentium 4 3 GHz… You SHOULD be able to run it on low-medium but only because of your CPU… Otherwise, GT 630 can manage this game on high settings… Again, I'm not sure so don't blame me if you have problems running it…

Max settings 70+ fps even with x4 MSAA even at 1920x1080 according to notebookcheck… If you disable MSAA outright, frame rates should increase substantially…

I would suggest you any CS game if you want a very fun and challenging game that will last years, If you want bigger maps BF and Arma is there for you. You also have L4D(2), Half-Life(2 and episodes), RO 2, Payday(2), TF(2) and many others!
