Probably your graphics card would struggle with performance. As I understand the 5670 comes in 2 versions: -

512mb
1gb

If yours is the 512mb version then don't bother with C.o.D at the moment, it would end up a stuttering mess. C.o.D needs at least 1gb of v/ram to play successfully, many of us with 1gb cards are finding the demand from this sim makes even the 1gb marginal.
You can turn down the settings so that lower spec pc will run it ok, but the main problem is the graphics card.

Can you post what the rest of your system is? you will also need 4gb of system ram as well.

I have 4 G Ram,with a E6550 Core 2 Duo 2.33 GHz,is that good enough? And yes it's the 1 G version.And is there anything official about the AMD Radeon 5670 support? Would not like to buy it for nothing.

Sorry for the delay Wizz, I had a similar system to what you have before an upgrade about 18 months ago. It will run, but not on full settings (you will probably have to try medium to start with). Your card is equivalent to the gts 450 that I'm using but your processor is a lot slower (mine is 3.4). This is a great sim with good graphics and features, it will just take a bit of time to get the best performance from your system (trying different settings). There are plenty of people here that will help you through the process. The main thing is to make sure that you get it updated through "Steam" to the latest version. After you have the latest version there will be no further updates as this sim has been abandoned by 1c studios (shame, as it showed just what a good sim should be like. Guess that profits before all else was the deciding factor).

don´t forget to install the Team Fusion patches 3.0, 3.01 and 4.0, they can boost your performance as well! And if you need a cheap graphics card that runs CloD very well, I can recommend the one that i am using: XFX 7870 Black Edition DD. Not enough to go absolutely max settings, but it plays well and already looks very good!
