    Go to Start > run > Type dxdiag, and hit enter. That'll run, a window will come up, click the display tab and tell me what it says under Name: (in the device category).

    I would say since your pc is equipped with such and old card that you need a whole new comp.

    This 7300GT is an awesome alternative if you don't want to build a new PC. It's AGP, just like your old card. It's probably one of the best AGP cards out, and should run source games at least on medium to high settings.

    Bottom line, if you can't compare what is in your PC to the minimum requirements on the game's box or website, then do not buy the game.

    Right click My Computer and click properties. What CPU do you have, and how much memory?
    Mine says: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU @ 2.40Ghz
    2.40, 4.00GB of RAM.
    Just for reference.

    The Orange box dropped DX8 support. In the October issue of Maximum PC they talked about the orange box. I quote the article from page 32 of that issue:

    "By ditching support for legacy directX 8 graphics cards, Valve opened the door for a much better looking Half-Life that is superior to both Episode 1 and Lost Coast."

    Go to Maximum PC to read the article for yourself.
