  1. Hi I'm planning on taking my cs experience further and buying the third installment in the series and I wanna know if I could have an enjoyable experience with the following system specs.

    gfx card 256mb nvidia 6200
    ram 1.5gb
    processor 2.7ghz intel celeron
    windows xp home edition w/ sp 2

    Memory & CPU wise you're in the clear but that video card won't be sufficient. Has your motherboard got extension ports (AGP &/or PCI-e) to allow you to upgrade the video card ?

    yes.. but might not be as "enjoyable". Well, graphics wise anyways.. but still playable :)

    is your nvidia a graphics card or onboard?

    I've always lagged in CSS, and so have friends with much better systems than you have now. Good luck...
