Default how big is Counter-Strike: Source?

This may sound like a weird question, but I just downloaded Steam (I'm finally reinstalling all my games after getting my new computer in early december), and I started downloading Counter-Strike: Source. Steam is telling me that the game is 3.6GB, and this seems a little high to me. The install for HL2 and Counter-Strike: Source combined was less than 5GB, which would make HL2 a smaller download than CS:S.

So yeah... I know its a dumb question, but how big is CS:S supposed to be?

I'm not sure at all, as I bought a hardcopy DVD of HL2 and installed it from there, but you have to bear in mind that there have been quite a few updates and new maps for Counterstrike: Source since it's original release. Although having said that, 3.6gb does seem on the excessive size. The only explanation I can think of is that it may be designed so that people can buy and run it even if they don't have Half Life 2, so it may also include the Source engine to allow independent operation. That's just a wild, uneducated guess though, don't quote me on that or anything.

I know at one time My steam folder was about 7 to 8gb with HL, CS 1.6, CS:S, HL2, and all the HL expansion packs.

1337mb for CS:S sweet.

*goes off to reinstall and update CS:S*

Right now my Steam folder is 3.91GB and all I have is CS:S installed. I let my friend borrow my hard copy of HL2 for awhile, and it just so happens that he gave it back a few hours after I downloaded CS:S from Steam, so I guess I'll just uninstall it and get both of them off of the CD. Thanks, and sorry about missing the CS forums. I don't know anything outside the Tech Discussion.
