I run the system requirements lab test for ghosts (http://community.callofduty.com/thread/200786048#.UnOvaxDAGMc) and it showed that the only problem is my graphics card.
Here's the screenshot: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7isitVP3Z7HamhEbDVNY2djM00/edit?usp=drive_web
It says that my graphics card can't run the game, but all the minimum features match.
My question is, will I be able to play the game, even at a low resolution(my screen's native is 1650 x 1080, but i have no problem playing at a lower one)?
I don't care about playing at something like 120 fps, but I want it to be playable, so something like 50, maybe 60 fps would be ok.
I will get a better graphic card in a few months, but i'd like to play the game on release, even if i have to use the lowest graphic settings possible.
It would be really nice if i get an answer before release, as i'd like to preorder and preload the game(http://community.callofduty.com/thread/200788417#.UnOyWBDAGMc) as it is quite big.

Q - What are your system specs??
There's a huge difference between 'running' something i.e. a game and playing it where you'll have enjoyment playing it, not to mention in Multiplayer being remotely 'competitive.' In most situations I recommend a GPU's like GTX 660 or HD 7870 or higher. Even for the Campaign you'll want a minimum of 45+ FPS.
sorry for the image, here an other link, should work: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7isitVP3Z7HamhEbDVNY2djM00/edit?usp=sharing
As for my pc specs,
my cpu is a core i3 2100(I will upgrade that too in a few months)
For the gpu, see the image
RAM: 8 GB
HDD: 1,5 TB
Hmm...doubtful the GTS 450 is significantly faster than the GT 430 - http://www.hwcompare.com/7606/geforce-gt-430-vs-geforce-gts-450/
Nvidia is having a price war right now with AMD, and you'll need a new GPU to run Ghosts. Also, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are going to be here soon enough. Clearly you can attempt to OC your GPU to its gills (try MSI Afterburner) and see what happens. However, in Multiplayer you'll have a really tough time even if it loads and runs.
Additionally, sometime between Nov 5th and 6th there will be a lot of official benchmarks, see a GPU where you can sustain 60 FPS or higher.
I just found that I can get an MSI Geforce GTS450 with 110€. That's not too expensive, so what I'll probably do is try to play the game at lauch(even if it means playing campaign on 800x600) and then buy that in a few weeks.
Thanks for all the information
No do not buy a gts450 that really old tech and at 110euros?
Get a better card like the 7850, at the minimum get yourself a newer card like a radeon 7790 or a 650ti boost edition.. both should be around that 110euro mark.
Make sure your pc has a large enough power supply.
I know the 7790 is about $100 usd and the 650ti Boost is about $130 usd.. You can overclock the 7790 and hit the 650ti Boosts speeds, probably the best bang for the buck in the price range.. otherwise wait to see more blackfriday deals, I use slickdeals personally or overclock nets online deals.
