Hey guys, i was just wondering if I should ge6t CS:S because i have a fast laptop but has only 256MB RAM and i dont even KNOW if my graphics will be good with my latop... I currently play CS1.6 and CZ and they have great graphics...But seeing how the source engine graphics are set up i dont know if i should get CS:S..I mean i dont want to waste $20 dollars on a game that wont work well with my computer..so my question is should i get CS:S seeing that my comp[uter specs are a bit low or should i just save my money for something else..? -n00b

    Well, if you want my opinion then no. with 256mb ram and unknown graphics, the performance will somehow be a problem even in low settings.

    I wouldn't get it if you think that it might not work. Plus laptops aren't the best when it comes to gamer computers, since you can't upgrade single parts when you want to. I would stick with what you've got. Unless you have a friend who has CS:S and would let you play his account on your computer to test it.

    Look...Click Start, open Run..., then type "dxdiag" (w/o quotes). That will give you your system specs. Copy and paste those specs so we can help you decide.

    Your laptop sucks too much for css to run acceptably. if your lappy was good, there are a lot more games out there that are way better than cs and css.

    Don't get source, it is the devil. Especially if it might not run perfectly on your computer then dont even chance it. I have every steam game known to man and I only play cs 1.6, ragdoll kungfu, and dod:s occassionally. Yeah source looks sexy, but feels like a loose whore.
