    Source SDK. It's under the tools menu in your library.

    And Source SDK Base 2007. That's important.

    To elaborate on what Psy said, the SDK Base is for running a mod made with that year's engine. If you never play a mod you don't need it.

    I could swear I've seen threads on here where people were having some sort of trouble with the SDK, and they were asked if they remembered to install the base.

    Lies! That would imply you were at least 4 years old!
