Their best gaming machine is far less, in quality, than my cheapest build!!!

you are wrong

for DVD,VCD movies, you need 25 fps to fool the eye and you will get the sign of " butterly smooth"

for 3d games, you need at least 60 fps to fool the eye

PC Specs:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 Conroe 2.13ghz
Gigabyte P35-S3 Motherboard
A-DATA 2x1GB DDR2 800mhz memory
Geforce 8600GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI-Express

bonehelm is right it's 25fps. although those frame rates do seem really low seeing as i average up as far as 70fps with "i think" all settings on high down to 20fps at bare minimum on a 6200. granted i don't have AA on though *-) i think my 6200 is just a freak of nature. i really don't know how a 7800 should perform in hl2 all i can suggest is get the latest drivers from nvidia, i think the last ones are december 21st. i bought hl2 last week and i was having some serious issues mostly that the game wouldn't start at all then i got the newer drivers and it works perfectly. rather strange seeing as the last drivers i had came with bf2 and bf2 is newer than hl2 so why would i need even newer drivers than that.
