I agree starcaft however is a GREAT GAME period.

1.8 Ghz is kinda weak IMHO esp considering its a intel (not bashing). However that should do fine if yu want to play CS:S. And a gig of ram will make your life so much nicer. Theres a HUGE DIFF betweewn 512 and a gig.

Geforce 7600 or 6800 is more then enough IMO. Should play just nicely.

But i'd go 7600 if u had the money for it

Oh yeah.. i forgot to put that into consideration. My current comp should be in my sig now and the video card i have is AGP. I didn't bother trying out high settings YET, since I lag in super crowded areas so i didn't want to step it up. Medium would be the highest to go for smooth gameplay in CS (looks GREAT), but for HL2, high would probably be smooth.
