City 17 had an interview with Gabe Newell from Valve. The interview is about Half Life 2 ofcourse. Here is a quote about the system requirements needed to run Half Life 2, in 1280*1024 with full details :

In another interview Doug Lombardi from Valve said that a Pentium III 800 with 128 of RAM would be the minimum requirements to run the game.
