Default Re: Low performance after installing 6600GT

Like many others have said HL2 is very CPU limited (especially after recent updates) so you'll find actually for most games your shiny new 6600GT will be severely bottlenecked by a 2.4 celeron and (!) only 256MB ram...

You'll need to complete your upgrade with a 3.0+ P4 and another 256, I would think. Shouldn't cost you that much, I think...
