Thread: Half Life 2(im Sorry But I Have Too)

  1. #1
    Im really sorry for asking but i need ot know if i should upgrade comp or buy an x-box


    MY SPECS:
    AMDXP2200+
    256 pc2100 ddr
    80gb
    Radeon 7500 64mb (lol i found one for $150 (canadian) not too bad)

    the minimum system reqs for hl2 are rather obviously gonna be pretty high.

    expect it to be (ballpark):

    P4 1.6GHz
    384-512MB RAM
    64MB video card (though your 7500 would probably run away crying). expect it to be in the region of radeon 9000 or geforce 4 ti4200.
    the install will probably be very large too (3-4gig) because of the details of the textures.

    if you were thinking of upgrading, i'd recommend a new graphics card and then 256MB more ram.
    there's no point getting faster ram (i.e. 2700, 3200) due to the fact your cpu has a 266MHz fsb. stick with another 256MB of 2100 ddr.

    you do not mention which motherboard you have. it's not exactly critical, however, a good computer is nothing without a good motherboard.

    thanx. i think ill go check out some prices for those radeon 9500 series, heard they were pretty inexpensive.
    and ill definattly upgrade the ram to ATLEAST 512mb

    Yeah right.

    It's comparable to the new Unreal engine.

    Which states its mins as:

    733MHz Intel/AMD CPU
    256MB RAM
    32MB GeForce2 MX
    3GB HD space
    8X speed CD/DVD drive
    Windows 98/ME/2K/XP

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    i did say ballpark.

    plus, it would be interesting to see what the actual performance on a system such as a

    733MHz Intel/AMD CPU
    256MB RAM
    32MB GeForce2 MX
    3GB HD space
    8X speed CD/DVD drive
    Windows 98/ME/2K/XP

    actually is.
    if anyone has a similar spec can they tell us what unreal 2 runs like?
    what framerates at what detail levels and suchlike.

    i&#39;m not trying to say that hl2 won&#39;t run on that spec, i&#39;m just highly sceptical

    520 DDR Ram
    2.4 P4
    umm im pretty sure its a got s very decent mothers board.
    64 MB Intel Extreme Graphic card.
    80 Gig Hard Drive

    i know im gonna be cleaning out my system once i get it as well. but how does that sound im prolly gonna get a new video card (if i can get money )

    they already stated the minimum rewquirments on one of the reveiws. i think it was gamespots review. just look for it, theres a link around here somwhere, i do remember it lightly:
    700mhz
    128mb ram
    32meg card (might be a 64...)
    thats pretty much all it said for minimum specs.

    YES&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33; oops :"> i-i mean ahem cool i dont need to upgrade my machine im gonna go search thru google to see if i can get n e more specs if i can i&#39;ll post them.

    700Mhz&#33;&#33;&#33; that&#39;s got to be wrong

    my system is
    750mhz AMD Duron
    128mb ram
    radeon 7000

    and even with all the details on lowest i cant get a decent framerate on rtcw
    (min 500mhz? i dont think so)

    I think the min will be in the same area as doom 3
    which is
    1.6ghz AMD athlon or P4
    a geforce 3, equivalent or higher
    256mb RAM

    this is basically dependent on the definition of "minimum" spec.
    what is the minimum average framerate at what details to qualify for the minimum spec?
    it&#39;s quite a grey area
