I play the original counter-strike on XP home addition. I seems to be running fine, no problems yet. I can't remeber if it was the orginal version of counter-strike or not, but one of the version prompted me when I first loaded it onto my computer...suggesting that I update the version of the game from 1.0 to 1.01 or something like that.

As far as the computer goes. Sounds like an okay deal to me but, personally I'd be weary of system that has an integrated graphics card. If it has an AGP slot for an after market video card that might be okay. But, if not you can't upgrade your card and you might be limited yourself to what games you can play.

Plus, when you play games on a machine with integrated graphics the card uses your system memory which is why they call it shared memory; game play can get kinda slow or choppy when the graphics card renders complex graphics (like explosions).
