hey i was wondering if i would be able to play cs source while my main rig is down.its a direct x 9 chipset and source says a min of 7. this lappy has an intel celron m 1.5ghz processor and 512mb of ram as well. so will it be playable? i dont think i will live until next week when my x-fi and 7900 come cuz of the stepup. thanks

I would try the original CS first over Source.

It SHOULD be able to play source, but you're gonna be running it at 640x480 with minimal details to get a decent frame rate.

You know...

Putting "www.intel.com" and "Intel Integrated 915G" into a search engine, I came up with...

Which in turn leads you to...

Which in turn leads you to...

http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/intel915g/sb/CS-020592.htm

Which contains the following text...

Intel® 82915G/82910GL Express Chipset Family
Half-Life* 2 game may experience low frame rates

Half-Life* 2 game is playable. However, this game may experience low frame rates (frames per second or FPS) during some fight scenes.

Using the latest version of the Intel(R) graphics driver is recommended. Refer to the driver README file for installation instructions as needed.

P.S. I know this information concerns Half-Life 2, but seeing as how Counter-Strike:Source is built off of the Source engine, like Half-Life 2, I felt it was relevant. It probably will run. But badly.
