If you want to strain your video card, HL2 is not the game to do it with. Far too optimized. Halo, being insanely unoptimized, is a much better choice.
Just a thought.
exactly why i switched, HL2 is a ram/processor hog, while Halo is a GPU hog, but leave most other resources alone (i come to this conclusion because with Halo, it doesn't matter what i run the background, it is allways the same ammount of laggy unless i change my graphics ptions, but with HL2, unless i shut down all non-essential programs, i lag, regardless of video settings.)
