    I answered your question in the other post. Too many posts tend to confuse everyone.

    If you google it, the spces dont list a graphics card so how do we know if your computer plays Half-Life2 if you dont tell us your specs?

    graphics card

    Here are the important specs for your computer:

    eMachines T2825
    CPU: AMD Athlon™ XP 2800+ Processor (2.083 GHz) with QuantiSpeed™ architecture
    Operating System: Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition
    Chipset: NVIDIA® nForce™2
    Memory: 512 MB DDR (PC 2700)
    Hard Drive: 120 GB HDD 2
    Video: NVIDIA® GeForce4™ MX graphics (AGP 8X slot available)
    Sound: nForce™ 6-channel Audio


    It looks like you have integrated GeForce 4 graphics so I highly doubt you will be able to run the game with some decent graphics. You might still be able to play it though, with everything at the lowest settings, I personally havent tried Half-Life 2 with that card, but I have tried games like Neverwinter Nights and Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield and the settings had to be at the lowest to run. I recommend you buy a good video card for your AGP slot. You can get some pretty nice ones for around 100-200 dollars that will run HL2.

    You should be able to play it at fairly high setting with a Radeon 9800 Pro or XT card. I could play it at 1600x1200 with an XP 3200. You might also want to get an extra 512mb of RAM especially since its so cheap now.
