if you get all source game (half life 2,portal,tf2,counterstrike source) i think thats what makes graphics better am i right?

i think so if you get all source games or get garrys mod if you don't have it because it has the base of all source models

if you do have garrys mod then try changing the quality on the settings

It might be the engine defaulting back to directx 8. Try starting the game with -dxlevel 9 in the set launch options. Also, remember to remove it after you started up the game with it once or else it won't save your in-game settings. Hope it fixes your problem

Portal is standalone, nothing else will help it. You need to raise your settings, DXlevel, and your Portal Rendering.
