I actually found my machine (back when it was a Riva TNT 1) actually 
gained performance when I installed the high-definition graphics update 
to Half-Life... and they warned that it would be too much for older 
machines to handle.  I guess they did enough OpenGL optimizations that 
they outweighed the increase in performance spec required.
