Hi and welcome to these forums cya.gif What's wrong with 70-90, it's very playable, just set everything maxed, your machine will do it fine? Or what's the prob. Oh, there have been some framerate issues with some updates with ATi Cards, so you may have issues.

At lest that many with all the good stuff at a high res(1600x1200) Heck, I run it on a 2.4ghz 9600pro 1gb ram system and I get 45fps at 1024x768 with all the effects and 2x AA and 2xAf. The source engine is awsome, runs on nearly computer.

Play around with your settings until you get one that has a reasonable minimum fps, then you can know what settings are best.
