    Which CounterStrike 1.6 with Half-Life?

    Also those graphics you have there is more for business. You need a good Geforce video card. 6200 128-bit DDR2 350MHz core 500MHz memory core. Newer games require more mhz though.

    Your integrated graphics card wont do :(
    If your just looking to play CSS then just purchase a 70$ card or what the guy above said to get, that looks like a alright graphic card to get.

    it shouldnt lag bad when you got 20-more fps
    just wait untill you get about 10.

    DirectX 10 won't work with Windows XP, only Vista and DX 10 compatible graphics card.

    Yes, the 6200 is a very good choice. If you want to go all out with a PCI card you would want the ATI X1550, though.

    Yep, your integrated graphics aren't going to cut it (obviously). Pick up a PCI 6200 and you'll be ok. If you've got an AGP port then you can also get a 6200, but you can go way beyond that if you want. A 7600GS would be a good budget choice, or even a 7300.

    definatly need a new video card, integrated suckssss sthe big one especially intel lol even the X3100 (i think newest on board video chip) sucks for games. Buy an ATI or NVidia vid card with atleast 128MB preferably 256 for better gameplay.

    Everyone just says "get a new video card," I think he could have answered this one on his own, lol
