overall your hl2 performance will be much better with the additional memory. However, much of hl2 is eyecandy. depends greatly on your video card. depending on your video card you will probably need to reduce some of the visual effects.

what video card do you have?

well the only way your going to get performance is to run half life 2 in dx8 compatability mode.

now that said you won't get any of the water effects or other cool textures and effects.

best bet is to upgrade your video card.

well man if ya need a smooth runing cs u need to change ur graphicC.

try Geforce fx5600 256mb

u cant play cs smoothly with an mx400

CS is kinda a marketing for graphic cards

New version need a new graphic card

U think Nvidia would sponsor huge CS tournaments like CPL just 4 fun :tazz:

p.s try this commands also

fpx_max 101

and turn vertical sync off

p.s.s try ESWC gui it might help u 2

Vertical sync.

Desktop Properties > Settind > Advanced > Your Graphic Card > Performance & Quality > Vertical Sync


ESWC GUI (electronic sports world cup)

its a configuration of commands that is used for this tournament
its kinda the best setting for LAN play
