Well there is so much space to be lorded over I can see how it would be stressfull.  Hey, maybe he was so far out in space he stumbled across a radio signal announcing HL1 had gone gold, and thus the mistake  :wink:

I just saw some of the early reviews. They are really talking this game up.

To get this or any really recent games to run, I need to buy a new computer.

Heres my question to my fellow CGers.

Can I buy a computer that will running Half-Life 2 well for under $1000? If so, links to companies would be appreciated. No Monitor needed, and I am not adverse to buying my own graphics card and installing myself.

Thanks in advance!

VU Games will also release a Half Life 2 Collector’s Edition that will include Half-Life 2 in DVD-ROM format, Counter-Strike: Source, Half-Life: Source, a free limited edition t-shirt, and a Half-Life 2 Prima strategy guide book.


Call me confused, but does "Counter-strike: Source and Half-Life: Source" mean that I got those games as well?

Half-life 2 on DVD would almost be worth the cost of the CE alone biggrin

Yes, you get all 3 games with the special edition. Although in Europe, we are getting Half Life 2 on DVD anyway, so I think I'll just get the basic version. I'm seriously thinking about getting a new PC in the next few weeks.

Scoop20906,

I got all my components from newegg.com.  I was able to get a new case, power supply, motherboard, processor, 1 gig memory, 160 GB HD, graphics card, DVD drive and Win XP for under $1000.  I also got a new monitor, but it was from a surplus store.  The only things I scavenged from my old system were the zip and floppy drives.

Are you comfortable putting together your own computer?  At the time, I couldn't find a pre-assembled computer as powerful as mine for the price I paid.

If you do put your own computer together, remember to connect the 12v power connector.  I didn't realize there were two power connectors at first and couldn't figure out why the computer wouldn't boot up  :oops:  Once I figured it out, everything went without a hitch.
