The game that the gaming community has been waiting about half a decade for is finally here, and now everyone can enjoy the title many call “the most anticipated game ever”. But in order to experience Half-Life 2 fully, you will need the hardware the game demands. We can tell you for sure that the game does need a powerful central processing unit. But what about graphics cards? Find it out right now, with us!
UPDATE: Adding more game demos and results.

Full-scene antialiasing does not bring us a lot of surprises: as the resolution rises, RADEON X800 products leave the competing GeForce 6800 family behind, however, as in the majority of cases, their performance is limited mostly by the CPUs. To get high speed in the Half-Life 2 in 1600x1200 resolution with eye candy enabled, you will most definitely need a RADEON X800 XT-series graphics card.
