NVIDIA GeForce graphic processing units (GPUs) have been selected by Activision as the preferred platform for Call of Duty 2, the highly anticipated sequel to Call of Duty which is the winner of over 80 'Game of the Year' awards. To enable gamers to experience Call of Duty 2 as it was truly intended, NVIDIA has reached an agreement with Activision that allows partners of NVIDIA to bundle the Call of Duty 2 game with graphics cards based on the award-winning series of GeForce GPUs. In a few minutes, you will start to see NVIDIA partners offering their NVIDIA-based graphics cards with Call of Duty 2.

A pre-sale program for GeForce-based graphics cards bundled with Call of Duty 2 starts immediately. US partners that will participate include:
