    If you've got a decentish CPU it will be fine. I played HL2 on a ti4400 / Athlon XP2800 and it looked great at 1024x768x32 with everything on high (apart from no AF and no AA and water reflections on medium).

    Yes and no.

    I think I can promise that it will run the game at decent speed, based on the fact that yesterday I played a bit on a - IIRC - Geforce Go 440; not in any intense areas, but it was fairly smooth, and I believe the 440 is slower than the Ti4200.

    However, it being a DX8 card you will miss out on fancy DX9 effects.

    Thanks for that.

    Will be using around about XP2200 cpu-with 256 RAM, I know this is a bad amount of RAM but all I can afford at the mo.

    All the shaders work fine in DX8 - there are no effects you don't see. It's just that in DX9 some of the effects are a little more refined and subtle. But mostly you won't tell any difference unless you are really looking.
