What's nice about Source is that it is great graphics with low requirments, i bet you oculd run in medium or high.

Just don't do antialiasing or antistropic filtering and you should be fine. I ran HL2 on a 2.8Ghz Celeron and a FX5200, and it was fine.

Yeah you should be able to get it to medium settings, if not then tone it down just a bit, but you'll be able to.
