Highly doubt your computer has them. I have a similar system and it uses sata. (This is my shit computer, my good one's like 900 mi away)

Well I want to run WaW and I downloaded custom maps and it lags like shit..
that is because i don't meet the minimum requirements for the video card part

::::
I have a GeForce 6150 LE
and you need:
Minimum: Shader 3.0 or better, 256MB Nvidia GeForce 6600GT/ATI Radeon 1600XT or better

so what can anyone give me a link to a video card that will be good to run CoD:WaW that will fit my pc ?

You need to supply us with your current PSU and what it can support. :)

Search your computer up on its brands website.

Then look for product details or something like that, and tell us what wattage it is.

Do you even know what you are even talking about?

The best way to check is to open your computer up and see if you have the space, the slots and the power supply to run that card.
