I built a new system a while ago, and its been working fine, except it cannot play any of the source games i have on my steam account! Ive tried HL2, and its episodes, and DoD source, and Counter strike source, and non of these work - the game will start, but when you play the textures are messed up, some of the objects are just checkered boxes, and it eventually freezes up (sometimes for just a bit other times you have to close the game)

Any other games work, including other games on steam that arent source games. All the drivers are installed and updated...

Here are my specs:

coreduo e8400
2gb ram
8800gt OC
250gb hd
550wat corsair ps
gigabyte p35-ds3l
