I can't wait to get my HL2 for christmas be worth the wait.
Heh with your guys specs mine will run like a dream:
768mbs of RAM
ATI Radion 9100 (which I will be upgrading to prolly 9600XT as my current card does not have DX9 features nor can support Doom3 on full so will neither in HL2 also).
One thing I like is HL2 has been optimised for ATI cards, I read that even ppl with the some of the best Nvidia cards the ATI ones will still run better overall.

No, it is because HL2 is optimized for DirectX 9 and by default the Geforce FX cards run on DX 8. HL2 can be forced to use DX 9 for FX cards but it's slower.

Same goes for Doom3, HL2 and Doom3 both use new shader technology apparently and acouple of other things that DX8 does not support.
My ATI RAdion 9100 is a DX8 card I will be upgrading to the 9600XT which is a DX9 to get the most out of HL2 and will be able to run it on High hopefully with my 3.2ghz hehe.
When I get my HL2 at xmas I'll be sure to challenge u to a match CommandoSR and I'll post some screens here as well.
