    do you think its just cuz my comp is poop, and thats why i cant run CSS well, cuz i see these ppl with good comps in here with the same problem, and somone might have the same fps as me, maybe i can't go any farther then what i have now, oh well its all good
    im back on the poopy computer for 2 weeks ( grounded)

    pretty much, your processor is a bit slow for CS and the GPU is a budget card that's not really meant for hardcore gaming. Don't stress though, as your new PC is going to be mind blowingly smooth in CS.

    Huh, about my resolution, i was playing under 800 x 600 and that was the resulting fps. anyway, so is it soley my graphics card that is holding the frame rates back? and do you know if they have released any new driver updates for the 6600 (non GT) even though its incredibly old?

    In the end, if it is the card, whats a decent graphics card that can run css and most other recent games? PCI Express... and how much is it around usually?

    Thanks for the help.

    it's mainly the GPU that's causing these poor frame rates, your CPU isn't exactly cutting edge, but it's good enough though, and you can always overclock it.

    As for a new card, anything above the 7900 GT level would be a good place to go. A few month back i'd have said go for an X1900 XT 512MB (were at really good prices), but they are really hard to find now. I'd say go for a 7950 GT 512MB (160) if you don't want to spend a ton of money.

    If you overclock your CPU and perhaps even the 7950 GT, i can confidently say you could then play at 1280x1024 with max image quality settings along with 2xAA and 16xAF on in CSS at over 60 fps.

    Ok i did my strees test and i had 64.something, after the CFG i had 96.something, my setup is.
    Conroe E6400
    BFG 7300GT
    OCZ 667 2 sticks of 512MB running dual
    Windows Vista final DX10
    Running at 1280x1024 if i change it to 1024x768 i only get a 2 fps gain wich i think is not worth it coz i like to tun it at 1280.
    Is this any good??? the 96 fps?? should i Overclock my conroe since it was bought exactly to be overclocked a bit, change the memory frequency, or timing what do you reccommend???

    Thank a lot

    Hey...thxs for this thread it worked a treat.

    I gained a massive increase on my g/fs comp which i built and its a low spec comp.Stress test reading from standard was 57fps...then after was 100fps.So i deleted the fps capped line and tryed again....it then increased to 147fps

    Tested on my comp and it went from 115fps to 187fps...but i like my graphics to look lush so i dont think i will use it on my comp.

    thx again

    to those of you who had there graphics settings keep resetting all the time, it's usually caused by using the -dxlevel 70/80/81/90/95 etc in the launch options and then not removing this line after you've set it and run the game once.

    you must remove this line after you set it.

    all you need for fps is a max of 60 fps because thats what the human eye can see any more than that is just useless so make your setting give you a min of 60 fps then your set

    the whole 60fps argument is just not true, test it on a crt and see.

    the magic number is 40 i had to learn this in a media class, cable tv refreshes at 29.9fps and it doesnt seem choppy to me i dont know about you guys. My old computer was only able to get 35fps with day of defeat and i had no problems with the game at all even when i finished building this pc and using and started getting 100+fps i dont notice that much of a difference with that game.

    That doesnt mean id go back to dealing with low frame rates now the numbers are more of a pride thing the more i get the happier i am. I cant wait to get my second 7950gx2 and push out more frames

    average human can only see 60, the reason you think you may need more is cuz when you turn or make quick mvements in game it stresses the hardware makeing you frames drop

    just create a txt file in that folder and rename the extenetion as 'cfg'

    if you can't see file extentions do the following. open a window, go to tools / folder options / view / untick 'hide extentions for known file types'
