One title that everyone is waiting for is Half Life 2, if it ever comes out. With Counterstrike: Source Beta - Valve shipped a graphic benchmark test that runs various tests to check out how well your graphics card and processor will run with Source based games.

While it's harder to judge how the gameplay will actually be this benchmark does show off some of the fancy effects that will be used in the final game and gives a good indication of how it may run on your hardware setup.
