    My HL2 still stutters after 1 gig. I dont get it, I thought that 1 gig would fix it. I guess I was wrong. Anything else I can do?

    Isn't the studdering in HL2 caused by the engine itself?
    I thought I heard that somewhere.
    2gig in HL2 wouldn't make that much difference anyways, since it's not a memory hog as BF2 is.

    Game shouldn't stutter for ya mate, the vid card and the ram you have there are more than enough to play smoothly.

    So it sounds like it could be a processing issue, check that nothing is running in the background and 'spiking' every now and then...
    Norton is the usual culprit I guess but it could be anything really...

    1 gig of memory makes a huge difference with XP in general, not just gaming
    I'm going up to 2gigs soon and using 1 as a paging drive!:) yum yum


    Just noticed you've got 1 80gig drive listed in your spec...
    might be a good Idea to get in a second hard drive seperate from your system drive

    the people that made half life put some sort of rstriction on it, there are hl2 tweaks out there that show you how to remove this restriction.
