    Just wanting to know what the minimum system is needed for running hammer.. preferably at a workable pace so I actually can get things done.
    Also, any way of using opengl rather than directx for hammer?

    In my experience, Hammer is fairly light, except when you come to compile. Generally speaking, if you can run Half Life 2 you should be able to run hammer, although when it comes to compiling stuff, the faster your machine, the better. Dunno about the second question, however I've yet to see a Source game use OpenGL, so don't hold your breath.

    Hammer does not run under OpenGL whatsoever.
