If you buy hl1 from the shops these days it's only about $10 - $20 for the goty edition (depending on region/country/state). Probably simlar pricing from steam or a tad cheaper possibly.

As for internet connection - Something like DSL (but preferrably Cable or better).

Playing with 56k or worse is suicide and will likely result in a negative gameplay experience.

If you play on servers near or on your own location with a 56k modem, you can expect to get a ping of 150 to 250, with a DSL connection or Cable connection, you will get a ping of 35 to 80. (again, depends on the location of the server).

Trust me, ping is a big deal in ESF, perhaps it doesn't really matter in First Person Shooting Mods such as Counter-Strike or Half-life 2 Deathmatch and such, but ESF is something different then all other mods. So the lower the ping, the best gameplay you will have.

You don't really "move" slowly. Due the high ping, it just takes a while before your character on the server responds to your pressed keys. It looks like you move slowly, but its just all the ping's fault :p, thats why you shouldn't really join servers that you will have a 175+ ping no. 80 ping is ok still, and so is 100.. But above it really starts to annoy your gameplay.

You should really get atleast a DSL, 56k costs even more than a DSL..
Atleast here. o_O
