Default problems with half life 2

I know this would be better placed on hl2 forums, but i want input from knowlegable computer peoples like the people on these forums.

When i start the game i get to the loading screen, then i get two error messages that popup and say a whole bunch of random numbers, then Memory Could Not be read on the same popup. I get two identical ones.

I ran memtest for 8 hours, no bad ram, theirs a crap graphics card in this computer, very low end and the graphics card was prob originalyl manufactured 4-7 years ago, should me putting my ned radeon 9800 pro xt fix the problem?

I think it's refering to the RAM on the video card. because it's so old, it's probably 16 or 32 mb ram, which is not enough to play HL2.

You need at least 1gb of ram, and a ATI Radeon 9800 Pro or nVIDIA GeForce FX 5900 to play Half-Life 2 on medium settings (maybe even low settings).
