    half life...

    I've seen Half Life running on an iMac here and by all accounts it runs great. I wouldn't know about others as I'm still waiting for the new iMac range at the moment. :)

    It's a decent midrange machine with the X1600 256 MB or 7600GT. I'd wait for an update first though.

    Get ready to run at medium textures on newer games. You really want more video RAM in the long run since you can't upgrade it.

    isn't half life a pretty old game by now to measure up against?
