6k seems a bit low maybe for a 9800XT, my 9800 pro gave 6.8k when it was overclocked (410/370).

9K for the cpu may be about right, my cpu has almost 300mhz more in speed and 1Mb L2 cache compared to your 512kb on the northwood.

My CPU on Aquamark gets 9.4k (P4 Northwood 2.6 @ 3.15 with HT). My 6800 is at 8.2k. Total score around 57k.

Be sure that when you get a psu that it is DELL compatible.

Counter Strike: Source is much more demanding. Ropey gave you the Requirements for the original Counter Strike. If your PC can play HL2 alright, then CS:S should be okay, too, since they are the same engine and were released at the same time. In fact, it would probably run it better, because there's no AI to bog down the CPU. (HL2 has a LOT of AI)

System Requirements for CSS

  • 16 MB Video Card
  • 500 MB HD Space
  • PC with Windows Operating System

* Recommended:
  • Pentium III 800 MHz
  • 128 MB RAM
  • 32 MB Video Card
  • 500 MB HD Space
  • PC with Windows Operating System

The system requirements for more modern games have drasticaly evolved from the above requirements.

You're confusing Counterstrike:SOURCE (CSS) with Counterstrike
CSS was only released in 2004 bundled with Half Life 2 and is quite heavily CPU dependant due to the physics involved.

System Requirements:
Min: 1.2 GHz Processor,
256MB RAM,
DirectX 7 level graphics card,
Windows 2000/XP/ME/98,
Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection

Preferred:
2.4 GHz Processor,
512MB RAM,
DirectX 9 level graphics card,
Windows 2000/XP,
Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection

It takes a fair bit of power to run it on high res and detail but the great thing about it is you can still play with a relatively weak machine.

My cousin was playing it 640x480 low-med details on a 2.4ghz Dell with an MX440.
