If my 2100+ xp with a 4400 g4 dosent run the game then it dosen't deserve to be run.

I really doubt they will make it unplayable by the majority of everyone out there. It would kill their sales.

Add a results option. I don't own an Nvidia card but would like to see the results.

Do we REALLY need ANOTHER thread on this? Sheesh.

Where are the mods when you need 'em?

well, plenty of results have been posted, but i want to see results with the beta drivers valve would not let anyone use. i bet if someone did a benchmark with those drivers, results would be alot closer then a 50% increase in ATI's favor.

Exactly. Also, the wrong forum.

I guess I missed something. What's the big deal with HL2 and nVidia?

with the current drivers hl2 runs like a dog, but i dont care too much as homeworld2 just cameout and that takes precedence over halflife

Did anyone run the DX8.0 mode on the 5900 to confirm this(I haven't seen anything with the 5900 in that mode)? In any other mode, there's a quality difference, resulting in a performance different.

Meh, I'm just gonna wait for HL2 on my Xbox so I don't have to worry about video card crap.

I'm not gonna upgrade my AthlonXP 2400+ / GF4 Ti4200 128MB just for HL2 if it's not enough cause frankly it is retarded if that won't run it decently.

I'm fairly pissed, I plan on selling my 5600 Ultra and getting an ATi card.

I spent a fairly decent sum on a new rig and im a cheapskate :p.

For me not to be able to play the game i've been looking forward to most is fairly lame.

Nvidia really messed up and continue to mess up, why support them?

I also hold no grudges vs Valve because i don't see how this is their fault at all.
