Default Can she?

My cousin wants to play some new games like HL2 and she wants to know if her system will be able to play them.

Pentium 4 3.2 GHz
1GB Dual Channel Memory
and a Geoforce FX5700 256mb.

she got this system for $900 bucks on ebay. I always thought ebay was bad.........

She'll be able to set them pretty high, though. Not maxed out, but not average either.

Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...

Only downside is that nVidia does not support anti-aliasing in Half-life 2.
