Is your PC up to the Half-life 2 challenge?

Valve's main person, Gabe Newell, has mentioned on a popular Half-life 2's forum the minimum and recommended specifications for playing highly awaited Half-life 2 game. The minimum specs will be DirectX 7 graphics hardware with a 1.7GHz processor and 256MB RAM. However, the recommended spec is: a 2.4ghz CPU, 512MB of RAM, Windows 2000/XP and a graphics card supporting DirectX 9. The minimum specs will certainly accommodate most low-tech users, unlike Frycry, which demanded high-end hardware.


Commenting will be coming soon. In the meantime, feel free to create a discussion topic on the forums.
