HL2 is a very cpu hungry game. I noticed a big increase in FPS when I installed a PCI sound card in my rig and stopped using motherboard integrated audio. It let a lot of cpu power free for games (however this happenned in a P4 system).

If you are not an audiophile, consider getting some budget PCI sound card. All cpu dependent games will run better.

Just my 2cents.
