    My specs are:

    AMD Athlon X2 4200+ 2.2gHz
    2GB RAM
    EVGA 8800GT Superclocked Edition

    I'm only getting 27-60 FPS in flipping call of duty 2 in a server with 40 people in it. On high texture settings. What's the deal, ive seen people with like 200 fps.

    That doesn't help much you know, unelss you specify

    But he is true. X2 4200+ isn't a gaming CPU. It lacks juice. Peoples who get 200 FPS have Intel Quadcores etc. So you need bit more juice. Like getting X2 6400+ Black Edition or changing into Intel and get Quadcore.

    Asus M2R32-MVP was affordable and good quality motherboard that overclocks well. One reason I bought it. Allows also crossfire. Not bad for its price. Abit has good models like Abit AN52 which is also affordable. Check like newegg.com how peopels have reviewd motherboards.

    but if you need to change mobo and CPU think Intel. If you're on tight budget, then AMD might be best bet though.

    P.S. Sorry about spamming. I ment to edit my previous post and post new one. Sorry about the brain fart.

    But yes, thejamppa is spot on. Thanks for filling in the details...

    Well, he never specified what resolution he was playing at. If he's playing at 2560x1600 then it's not too much of a stretch to see his FPS that low.

    So, what's your res, pal?

    I don't even have any options to go above 1280x1024... I wish I could go higher.

    I'm sorry but people yelling bottleneck for a 4200 are just over reacting. It's CoD2 for the love of god.

    Give us the specifics of your PSU and tell us what Mobo you're using so we can attempt to help you before you go out and spend a fortune.

    Hmm

    PSU:
    Model : ATX AS420W 12V
    Output max power: 450W

    Not sure about my mobo, but I know it's a socket 939.

    looks like your specs are very close to mine, and my MOBO is crap and i can pull 100+ FPS 4xaa 16xAF with no problems in COD2.
    Altho i do run Vsyinc unless im just trying to see what max FPS is, so i play it at 60FPS.
    But they are right AMD just is not as good as intel for gaming.

    This is my last AMD for some time, im building a intel very soon.

    I'm assuming this is the same PSU?

    http://www.directron.com/as420w.html

    Meaning you only have one 12v rail running at 20 amps? The 8800GT requires 22 + amps "minimum" if I'm correct. Yours is the superclocked edition so it may require more. I'm calling a PSU problem here personally. Intel may be the better processor choice right now, that doesn't mean the solution to every hardware problem is to run out and buy a brand new Processor, Mobo, and possibly even RAM. Not to mention the fact he'd still need a new PSU.

    Use your heads people.

    I could always remove the Intel Mobo from my other PC and put it in mine. And buy a Q6600.

    And get a new PSU. What PSU do you recommend?

    +1 x2 4200 isn't the best for gaming... if you run game with high resolution you can save process work. but the 4200+ isn't gaming process

    It "should" work - considering it to only be $20 after the mail in rebate that's a fairly good deal. I'd say go for it, even if you do decide to upgrade to the Intel/DDR2 etc setup, you'd probably need to invest in a new PSU anyway. From some of the customer reviews on Newegg there's a number of them using the supply with 8800gt's just fine. I'd highly suggest taking little notice of the people telling you to straight up-upgrade until you've got a new PSU in your machine. You could even try oc'ing your processor a little if worst comes to worst.

    There's no point in spending money if you don't need too, and I'm fairly sure that you wont.

    So I would get higher FPS with a better power supply?
