With CS:S, probably not good. You'll have to dial down graphics and resolution to run it acceptably.

hi i just noticed your on your desktop they are the same as mine, i have trouble playing cs especially if smoke genades are throw the best u can do is go and tweak the consol or just buy a agp card and stick it and and should run cs:s fine even if its 64mb it will play alot better so then u can have full 256mb for your desktop and other things and will run much smoother.

Laptops don't make good gaming rigs, unless you pay over $2000 for one that has nVidia GeForce 6800 Go or ATI Mobility Radeon X800 graphics.

Your game performance with that laptop is gonna suck...the onboard Radeon 9000 32MB isn't gonna be able to cut it, unless you stick with older games. Intel extreme graphics suck as well.
