g859; Unless you have trouble running Source games for some reason (and I don't think you would with those specs) I imagine your setup will run DOD:S just fine. The only thing that might limit it is your video card, and even then it might not make a difference. You have a faster processor, and more RAM than I do and a comparable internet connection, and for my part HL2/CS:S/DOD:S and pretty much any Valve game or mod runs like a dream on my machine (the only exception being FakeFactory's Cinematic MOD, which requires a really high end machine, and even so I can sometimes run it with a bit of hiccupping). I think if your Radeon can support HDR you'll be able to run DOD:S better than I can. :) -Worker.

that sounds pretty good 2 me and I could run HL2 at 60-80fps with no lag whatsoever with everything MAXED. With the hi-res packi ran it at around 30-40fps:bows: :bows: :bows:

g859; Sure. CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3500+ MOBO: ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939 RAM: 1024MB Kingston HyperX dual-channel GPU: BFG nVidia Geforce 6800GT /w 256MB video RAM HD: 250GB SATA Maxtor 7200rpm Net: 1MB up/5MB down ADSL via Ethernet port Optical: LG 'Superdrive' DVD-RW dual-layer Input: LX300 Logitech 'Black' wireless optical mouse & keyboard Output: 19" Viewsonic BLACK G90F monitor, running at 1024x768 desktop (usually I run HL2, FEAR and Dawn of War at 1280, and my g-card and monitor can step up further than that), and for sound I have a 500w Technics stereo with 2 x 250W tower speakers with the Aux jack hooked into my rig's headphone output jack through an RCA-to-stereo cable. :) My motherboard can run another 6800GT in SLI, and since the price for one locally has dropped down to around $120, it'll be my next upgrade. (Still find it wild that I paid$600 for my 6800GT when I had my box built last September.) Probably also going to get a plain 16x DVD-ROM drive. The only HL2/Source MOD my box has a lot of trouble with is Fakefactory's Cinematic MOD, which requires the kind of RAM you have to run smoothly. FEAR, Dawn of War, Serious Sam II and Neverwinter Nights love my box to death. ;) Erf, I'll get off my soapbox now. :) -Worker.

g859;

If one pops up at my end, I'll see what I can do. :) For now, I think you can probably get a 6600GT for \$100 (I'm no pricing genius; it could be more or less depending on the manufacturer, but that was the price I remember seeing it quoted for locally a few weeks ago at a big box store), and given your current card (which isn't bad, just not as good in comparison with more recent cards) I think it'd be a worthwhile investment.

My advice to you is to try DOD:S or Lost Coast with various settings, starting with low or medium detail/shadow/effects, or just jump right in with HDR but at low detail settings. I don't know that a 9800 _won't_ do a good job with HDR or DOD:S; experiment a bit. I can assure you that your other specs will run DOD:S well, at least. :)
