Question about Half-Life 2 with Cedega

Alright, so here is the deal.

After struggling with Microsoft's insecurity and instability for years, I have really been considering whether I really should switch into using Linux full-time. ( Right now I have a Debian Linux server running behind my back and my primary PC is running Windows XP ).

The only problem I have is Half-Life 2. It's the only game I really would like be able to play in Linux. I have heard it *runs* under Cedega, but I'm not too sure if it will run with my current specs, which are:

AMD Duron 1,8 Ghz
768 MB of DDR400 ram
ATI Radeon 9600 XT
MSI KT4A-V mobo, with AC'97 audio soundcard and VIA Ethernet thingy.

If anyone of you have ever done this kind of a "transition", can you please tell me how HL2 ran with your box? I have been planning to use Debian with my new linux box.

Hmm, the CPU will be your problem there. I can play it at 40-60fps on my machine which is a tad more powerful.

Pentium4 3GHz
Nvidia Geforce 6600GT

It's not really that tricky to setup, if you have US$15 to throw away in case it doeons't work then just install Debian in a dual-boot setup and give it a go. Not a lot to lose other than a little cash which may be worth the investment if it works for you.
