Default Is it good enough for CSS?

Well, I've been thinking about buying a computer for just school / schoolwork and I was wonderin gif it might also be able to run CSS (Counter-Strike Source).

The computer is from Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883114074

CSS Minimum Requirements: 1.2 GHz Processor, 256MB RAM, DirectX 7 level graphics card, Windows 2000/XP, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection

Ty in advance.

I think it can run it, but far from the best of settings.

Yeah, but eMachines have really flaky PSUs. I'm thinking any decent GPU upgrade would be too much of a power draw for that crappy little PSU to handle.

I've tried running CS:S on a GMA 950 myself with no success. You are going to need a GPU upgrade, along with a PSU upgrade, but then your CPU will most likely bottleneck your GPU since it's only a 1.6Ghz Atom. Basically, you gotta stick with 1.6

Sorry dude.
