    I was wanting to get HL2 but i am concerend it will run like an old lady driving a Autin Allegro, so can anyone tell me how smoothly it will run on my system:

    AMD Athlon 2400+xp
    512DDR Ram
    NVIDIA GeForce 5600XT
    17" CRT
    MSI 6712 motherboard(?)iirc

    Will this be enough to play HL2, i ask this as i bought FarCry and it just played like a NES game on anything above 800*600res and that without anyof those fancy graphics options turned on, like trilinear filter or whatever it was called.

    If my system isn't enough to run HL2 what would be your recomendation to upgrade first, i was thinking it would be the RAM if so any recomendations as to where to buy RAM.

    Cheers

    Yeah should run pretty well! :thumbsup:

    I'm running it on an :

    XP2200+
    512 400mhz DDR ram
    GF4 Ti4400

    Runs great on 1024 x 768 or even 1280 x 1024 with medium settings on and it still looks amazing!

    If you want to upgrade i'd say Ram first, then Graphics & then CPU in that order.

    You really should buy it - it's arguably the best game ever made!

    i'm running it on

    asus a7n8x deluxe
    athlon xp2800+
    1gb ram dual channel PC3200
    geforce fx5900xt @465/850

    all settings maxed, 1360x768 resolution, 4x AA and AF, and it's like butter. ID should take note of this and maybe learn how to make a game engine!
