so what kind of graphic card do you have alkalineTrio?
I only have a 128meg FX 5200. But I'm not getting another I only got that about 5 months ago, so guess I'm stuck with that. I'm gonna get a really good motherboard and processor though so that should help pull the crappy G/card along all being well.
well at least you will be able to play the game. thats a uhh good point.
keep in mind folks, that the Nvidia card (as shown in the tests) are only runnin DX 8.0!!! HL2 will be running dx 9.0 which (if its fully impleminted) will drastically improve perforemance. the ATI cards are probably runnning optimized dx 9.0 (vid card companies are notorious for slanting comparisons, and judging the twist that Nvidia tried to pull about being exclusively compatible, ATI is no doubt trying to make up for it
Or, mabe they couldent use direct X9 because it couldent even run it.... why would it improve performance? if anything i though it would make it lag more because (i belive) it makes it look way better, but you could (and might) be right. but impretty sure it would run worse with directX9 enabled. and also why would they run it in directX8 anyway?
