HL2 Should run on that (it runs on mine - AMD Sempron 2800+ 1.6ghz, GEForce FX 5200 SE, 512mb RAM) but one piece of advice - if you can "patch" it to avoid steam usage, DO IT! (not for illegal purposes, just steam is a load of crap)

the system that valve use to distribute updates etc but it also means you have to be online to play the game thats registered with it (i.e. half life 2) even if you just want to play single player *kill valve* which is why i hate it so much (plus its so buggy and bloats your hl install)

I'll tell you something about Half Life 2 - it's incredibly hard to steal off the internet for free. Damned anti-piracy. :P

i can gather that you tried (but failed :P) it's a matter of knowing where to go... (any futher elaboration would be pushing it) no encouragement meant in that comment, just careful phrasing (so just for anyone waiting to pm me, i won't give you links for it)
