I was wondering what peoples thoughts on the way hl2 would run on my computer would be. It is currently

duron 1.3 ghz 512mb pc2700 ram radeon 9500 pro 80gb h/d 8mb cache.

I am considereing upgradin to a barton 2600+ so wat are peoples opinions on the gaem from before and after.

I have seen the requirements and am guessing it will even work on my current computer just the processor isnt to great. however maybe i should get the processor i dont know please help me

Thanks

Well I FINALLY got my ATI Radeon 9800XT and it is FUCKING sweet!

Looking at your specs, there is no doubt it will run with ease, I did have the 9500 pro also, but your processor might be a question!

Do you think a geforce4 mx 440 8x will work with half life 2?

SAY NO TO nVIDIA !!!!!!!!!! Trust me. You can try, but if you look at the PC Gamer December 2003 Volume 10 #12 *I think that's the one* they go into detail comparing nVIDIA to (ATI) Radeon. The newest nVIDIA compared to the ATi Radeon 9100: nVIDIA=61% all around compared to the Radeon.

Dont mean to dis nVIDIA, but GO RADEON!!!!!!!!

DX9, PS 2.0, Full precision floating-point 2.8 GHz P-IV, 800 MHz FSB Average of several test DEM files Check Dealtime for prices NVIDIA Detonator 45.23 ATI Catalyst 3.7

*Note: The 9600 listed in the graphs is actually a 9600 Pro - it was a typo by Valve dx9_full.gif

Valve did a little homework on Pricewatch to see which card offers best frame rate for the dollar - yes, we're just as surprised as you are to see the 9600 Pro take the top honors. That doesn't meant at all that it's the best card, just the best value.

The Full Precision mode runs 24-bit precision, the way Microsoft's DX9 calls for. This mode runs Half-Life 2 in full splendor - the experience Valve intends for the game to have. There's no doubting that ATI's hardware is clearly superior.

Here we have full precision mode versus DX8 mode - NVIDIA's own TI4600 runs this mode better than its current "DX9" hardware.
