    Hi, I'm a complete PC gaming n00b. Most of my forte is in the consoles, so I hope this question doesnt seem to dumb.

    I bought a retail box of half life 2 and installed it on a computer with an intergreated Intel AGP 900 128mb video card. Needless to say, it does not run very well, and counterstrike source runs horribly!

    If I uninstall the game will I be able to load the same retail box on another, better, computer? It's just that I set up a new steam account, and it took quite awhile to load/download everything. I only plan playing the game on one computer for myself.

    Thanks for any input.

    If you have a way to make a backup before you move to the new computer, that would be your best option to avoid redownloading everything. Steam has a nice built in backup utility too. And all of your Steam info is saved with your login(games you have purchased), so none of that is lost.
