Nice. I would have thought the 6800 would be bottle necked or slowed down by your 'slower' ram and CPU. Is your PC premade or custom? To run a 6800 to it's fullest it's recommended you have at least a 3.0GHz CPU (Or AMD Equiv) and PC3200 Ram am I correct?

Its a premade, or I would have had a better motherboard to support better ram, and a better cpu. I had to change the box though to fit a bigger power supply, plus I added 1 gb of ram and a new video card. It doesnt matter if I dont get the most from my card since I can play pretty much everything that's out on full settings. Also everything that will be out in the future like stalkers. The mobo's also 4x agp.

I think HL2 will take advantage of 8X AGP right?

no, its the type of connection between hardware, the graphics card and motherboard, there is also PCI and now PCI-Express.

Right.

AGP is what the video card uses to connect to your motherboard. Usually it is brown and likewise, it's called a AGP slot. Older ones ran at a speed of 4x, now they have 8x out. Only thing is, that most games couldn't use the the speed of 8x yet, but with HL2 using so much to technology, I was wondering if it will utilize the 8x speed increase.
