Now it's a graphics card question Ok, I just got around to playing Half Life 2 and I installed it ok, got the account and blah blah blah. So finally got to the start eg. the train, took about 10 steps and BAM, the whole thing froze like R Kelly on a rape charge My pc wouldn't be the best but I only got it about 6 months ago and it's pretty decent (imho) I reckon I'll just have to turn off some of those pretty effects...how? So if anyone could take a quick look at my system speculations and tell me what to do/change I'd be much, much obliged. Sorry in advance for the lack of technical know-how in those specs :blush: P.S. It looked like a good game from what I saw :haha: so thanks for the recommendations from another thread I started a while back. EDIT: If you need minidumps from the crash I'll post 'em just say so.
