i got hl2 for my comp and tried to play hl2 deathmatch.It was mostly in slowmo for some parts (most game play) but i downloaded garrys mod because i have team fortress2 and counter strike source i have the same problems. i got garrys mod and played single player and it works just fine but when i go on line its back to playing like hl2 deathmatch, team fortress2, and counter strike source.what is the problem?!:mad: i have XP, running 2Ghz, 1gb ram,nividia FX5500, and high end DSL. im going to upgrade to 3.06 GHZ in about 2 or 3 months.

The nVidia FX5500 is not a good graphics card for gaming. Is your 2GHz single or dual-core?

It's a little hard to understand. Maybe you could tell us again but a little more clearly?

Maybe your Internet isn't fast enough? Have you tried testing your connection.

Called it! =p

So yeah, it's probably a good time to upgrade. Is your video card AGP or PCI-E?
