Sure you can run the game:)

But performance is a different thing. the Geforce4 MX420 must leave immediately for a decent ATI Card. "Thats not being a Fanboy, I dont like fanboys..But based on benchmarks" I must reccommend u getting a 9600pro, then upgrading to 1gb RAM.

Yeah an ATI card 9600 or higher would be great for HL2, and 1bg of RAM wouldn't hurt eather.

And there is a thread called "Will my Computer Run HL2?".

yeah if u go to 1gig of ram and a 9600 or better youll be able to run hl2 on med to highest settings. because i have a 3ghz proccesor and 1gig ram and 9600 and run majority of games on high settings

Like they say, A new graphics card and you'll be fine. May I recommend the ATI 9600XT. But if you like around, there's some great Nvidia ones for that price too.

But Nvidia isnt doing so hot in Half-Life 2 Benchmarks....But What ever floats ur boat.. Get a 5700ultra or 9600pro or higher.
