    Default Has any one placed order for Half Life 2?

    After all the hype and wait, just wanna see how many CSer have ordered their copy of Half Life 2. (Scheduled to launch on 19 Nov right?)

    Probably have to triple my ram, upgrade to a new gfx card 5 generations down my current one, and get a new processor

    Hmm..have been playing CS:Source for months, which is based on HL2 engine

    still lagging on my P4-2.4Ghz + 9600XT (overclocked) + 1GB of RAM

    only playable (ard 30-40fps) at 800x600 and default details and Anti Aliasing on.

    It is a waste if u play at low details level and anti aliasing off

    One day i am going to install the X800XT and try 1600 x 1200 with max detail and anti aliasing

    what graphic card are u using?

    Geforce 3
    Doom 3 crawls...
    Have got 512mb ram, P4 2Ghz on an old 845E chipset, what gfx card would u recommend?

    Seems like these days, the performance is dependent more on the gfx card than the CPU speed of the system.

    It's either x800 256mb vs Geforce 6800 128mb (not ultra or GTS)...they're at $750 and $545 respectively.

    What's the recommendation?
