    I'm done, that was quite a big download especially since when you preloaded TF2 you got the newer Source engine build.

    The way they wrote the algorithm to calculate those probably uses an average, hence erroneous results.

    WTH...My preload froze at 95% for no reason. Internet is still working(otherwise I wouldn't be posting this) and both my drives have more than enough space. Any help?

    BTW freakyflor, if my Geforce 6200 and 3.0 Ghz P4 can run the game, then your rig should have no trouble at all.

    Try pausing then resuming the download. If that fails, restart Steam and resume.

    Restarted Steam...that seemed to work, although for some reason my DL is much slower than before. Oh well, it's only 5%.
