    This is not source right? I dont think it will run on an x300.

    1.6 should however.

    Try updating your drivers buy going to http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html and picking your OS and your Card on the menu.

    Are you running Vista by chance?

    I upgraded my drivers. I'm not running vista, only windows xp. I get 1.6 to open and join a server, but everything is extremely laggy. I can't play its so laggy. I have the resolution at 1280x1024, and i've triod everything else. I run every other game fine mainel World of Warcraft. i was wondering if my problems with1.6, and not being able to play source would be fixed if i upgraded my video card and got a PCI express card or something else. Thankss

    Have you tried a lower resolution (even if it is not native) just to see if you can get it run? Try somethin rather low 800x600 or something of the like.

    I am running out of ideas, hopefully someone else will have something.

    I will try that, but i put another post in another section, and they said i probably just need a new video card. But i will try the 800 resolution. Thank You
