look up benchmarks for your specific res you wanna play at... but the processor might be a bottleneck.... but its a crappy card so who knows...

it should play cs:s fine, don't know about halo 2 though... but as I already said, look up benchmarks for your card and then get an idea of how it performs in similar games

i personnaly wouldnt play CSS with that rig... id be annoyed at how slow it would be... but i have a hard time playin css under 60 fps, with quality graphics...
it would definately run it... but it wouldnt be very good
(i run css on my turion x2 (dual 1.6mghz), with 7600go, 1gb ram... but it really sucks)

dont wanna be an ass, but what did u expect with such a rig!!! :p  save a lil money, get some e8400 cpu, with some HD 4850, and u ll be set man...

It's a very good overclocker is that cpu too so you could overclock it for a cheap speed boost. The card will run it ok just not with a lot of anti-aliasinge etc.

i beg to differ on the bottle necked CPU, have any of u actually used a pentium dual core, they offer amazing proformance for pice.
I built my gf a 2.4Ghz pentium dual core, 4 gig , 7900 GTO, OC the dual core to 3.4 Ghz and that can run css in max settings 60 FPS, i know the GPU is better and its OC but the pentium duals aint that much worse than the core 2's at the same closk speeds

id say ur better off upgrading the Graphics card personally i recon the rig as it is should run CSS in med detail at 60 FPS or try OC the pentium dual core

actually.. the pentium D architecture really is THAT much worse than a core 2 architecture...

but e2200 is the core 2 architecture i believe...

Either way you can't argue the fact that it WILL be a bottleneck... its certain it will be a bottleneck... even the best processors today are bottlenecks... the more processing power you have... the more you can get... ALWAYS

unless the gpu is the bottleneck but i doubt it will be at a low resolution

the pentium duals and pentium D's are totally differnt. pentium D's are crap they are almost like a pentium 4 where as a pentium dual is more similar to a core 2. the e5200 is basically a core 2 with less L2 cahe. thats why im saying hes dual core cpu wont be much of a bottle neck for the games he plays css can run at 60fps given the correct ram and GPU with his e2200
