    You probably mean gigahertz, and yes, a 2.6 should improve the hl2 experience compared to a 1. What kind of videocard exactly do you have?

    i would recommend a 9700 pro because you could probably get one under $200 these days. ebay is a good bet because just about all of them are new and from online vendors who use ebay as their storefront.

    I'm thinking anything ati will run just fine. Especially in the higher end range, all 9800 should be okay.

    Go with Nvidia, thats what HL2 is based at running on.


    dude get ur facts straight. For every single benchmark ever done on HL2,it has worked better on ATI cards...and yea as the other guy pointed out, ATI gives out free hl2 for like 9600XT and up.

    ATI= gppd
    NVIDIA= good
    on must games the 9800XT only gets like 5 more FPS for the most part than the 5950 ultra.
    The thing is with Halo PC it was coded for xbox, though they made tons of modifications to the code, it still would run better on that console, plus the shaders are burdans on older cards like the GF4 Ti's, or newer ones like the FX 5600 and 5200 (both those cards suck *** for DX9 apps)
    the 5700 ultra = 9600XT performance wise.
    its :shock2: to say that either nvidia or ati sucks :rofl: :dong:

    I think after hl2's official release, I'm putting off on getting it. Lost my interest after awhile and don't care much for it anymore. I'd rather get Halo 2 first :D

    the halo coding is terrible *shakes head in disgust*

    company: 'yeah, it'll run on a 700 mhz !!!'

    geek /w high end computer: 'omg, this runs like ****, wtf did they code this /w ? monkeys with typewriters that were high?'


    Agreed - I had to run it on all the lowest settings. I wonder how it performed on the xBox.

    I can wait for HL2, I don't mind =/

    For videocards, go ATI. First, they are better then Nvidia (Better benchmark results) and HL2 will be optimized for ATI cards.

    So, basically go for:
    Radeon 9600 Pro
    Radeon 9600 XT
    All-in-wonder Radeon 9600
    Radeon 9700 Pro
    Radeon 9800 XT
    Radeon 9800 Pro

    You can't go wrong : )

    it's funny how the people who leaked hl2 were able to play online. it was clearly not finished, but what do you expect from valve? i mean they basically only released 1 game. i can't wait for hl2. damn i need a new video card. halo pc owns.

    You'd think Valve would get its *** into gear and release ASAP rather than delay when all their technology has been leaked.
