Is Call of Duty WaW really power hungry?

hi guys.. first of ill start with telling you my System specs

2 GB ram

2.0 Ghz duo intel core duo processor

256mb 8400m GS

well i play Fallout 3, FarCry 2, CoD 4, and CoD WaW

and by far CoD WaW runs the worst, which doesnt make sence at all because farcry and fallout have higher system reqs than CoD WaW

im really stumped at whats going on

i have 178.24 driver

can anybody help me into whats happening? i only run it on the lowest resolution

I'm having very much the same problem. But with slightly better specs;

4gb ram

2.2 Ghz Core 2 Duo

256mb 8600m GS

Though I found that lowering texture settings helped (all set by default to ULTRA) but not very much, leaving the overall performance quite bad. Since I have Far Cry 2 and Crysis (Cod 4 - highest settings) and can run both on Medium to high settings on 1200x720 or something, with extremely better frames than Cod Waw. (Higher than 800x600, That I'm sure of)

It's quite strange. It might be because either:

a ) Infinity Ward (Creators of Cod4) didn't make Cod WaW.

b ) Compared to Crysis, in Cod Waw you don't have very much of a choice of settings. ie. High, Medium or Low.

c ) Or it's just time to buy a new PC.

Have you bought the full game? Because I only had the performance issues in the beta. Meaning it could have been a beta thing.

Go their accept to install their program and go to town. It takes your computer system specs and matches it up to games to see if you can or can't run it.

CoD WaW isn't nearly as demanding as Crysis.

I'm slightly late with a reply, but right now I'm running Dox Optimized 181.20 drivers. Since they have been the only drivers that I could actually get to install. But I am going to try to install the new ForceWare X 185.20, but I doubt if it will work, even using the modded inf.
