Question For all you people who play CS: Source (sorry if in wrong board!)

I love the original Counter Strike and I'm about to get a new computer that will be able to handle source perfectly.

However, I'm wondering whether my Internet connection will allow me to play without lag. I have a 2MB connection (upgraded from 256KB, I'm only paying 17.99 per month!)

So, will this be able to handle source?

Thanks

Haha, it'll be able to handle it no problems, as long as the server you are playing on is also running on such a fast connection.

I also have 2mb and suffer no problems
