    If I were to buy a steam account, can I play the games without having the game? I would mainly buy one for CSS, but i dont have that...:(

    If you mean without having the game as in without the CD, yes. All you need to do is pay for the game and the game you bought is recorded in your account. So wherever you go, the games you bought will be in your steam account always, so you can download it anywhere you are.

    Yea, if you buy an account from steam you dl the games off steam :P So instead of going to the store, and buying it on CD.. You go to steam, purchase the packages, the games will be on your steam list, and when you double click you will be able to dl em onto your comp :eek:

    When you register a CD key to a steam account (either by buying a CD or online through steam) you can download the game to any computer and play it using your account: But it takes hours!

    The guys above you said that in different words, you're just like everyone else here, you post what everyone else posts to sound smart, which in return gives you 1 more post and 1 more credit, thus making you feel accomplished.

    As Phat Albert said, it doesn't always take hours, unless you're on a horrible connection and your computer sucks.

(my own experience) XD ! and i had to give my account to the seller and set it up ! after he set it up i changed my password back ! but yeah better be careful lol ! cuz some ppl will take ur account XD ! i bought my CS:S cd key off ebay !
