But Source doesn't have threads, does it?
*checks Wikipedia*
Oh. It was added in the OB engine update.

Wikipedia also claims that Left4Dead will run on a Pentium 4, which is single-core. Hmm...


The Source engine take advantage of however many threads you have, which is why if you have a single core, it needs a high clock speed.

Just played the demo of Tomb Raider: Underworld. It doesn't seem too bad, although I wonder how much more fan service-y they can get short of getting the gal naked.

So my ol' machine is finally hitting the bare min spec for games....

AMD XP 2800+
2 Gig OCz DDR400 Dual Channel mode
WinXP sp3
EVGA NV 7800 GS CO 256M GDDR3
2x250 Gig EIDE ATA 133 7200 rpm hard drives.
DLink Wireless Ethernet PCI card.
Montego DDL soundcard.

And to think I've been running this rig for about years now.

Guess it's finally time to upgrade........

You know, I was going to come here and ask if it would be better to get L4D on Steam and play it on launch (but having to download about 7 gb) or on retail and play it around christmas.

Then I realized that I have unlimited downloads, the game is cheaper on steam, and if I pre-ordered I could be playing next week. Not only that as I now have a salary and (curiously enough) less expenses. :P
