    Though CS:S is old, it's still very demanding, perhaps not graphically, but computationally. A 1.73 GHz Celeron M is going to hold things back, and the 945 GM chipset (the GPU is probably the Intel GMA 950) is not in any way a gaming card, even if the marketing tries to persude this.

    It also uses a similar technolgy as Turbo Cache or Hyper memory as found on the cheap, waste of time NVidia and AMD graphics cards. The Intel version is called "Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT)" and essentially means it uses system memory as graphics memory, so that 224MB you are getting from DXdiag is mostly, if not all coming from your 1Gb of system memory.

    Because of this, you no longer have 1Gb of memory, you have around 768MB, so a heapsize of 512MB is too big, try 384MB.

    And Vista is certainly not a good idea on a laptop like this, period, you'd be much better off all round on XP.

    This guide will work for those on mid range systems (6600GT type graphics cards), but if the GPU is too weak, there's not much you can do but try it, and hope for the best.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. Although, I don't think I'll be able to persuade my sister to switch to XP for the purpose of my own gaming satisfactions, therefore I'm probably not going to be able to play the large maps.

    I'll just have to wait until I get a decent desktop computer.

    Default FPS low, frustration high

    So i purchased a new gfx card the other day.. a nVidia GeForce 7600GS, 512mb core clock=400MHz Memory clock=700MHz (AGP 8x). I was thinking it would dramatically increase my fps in CSS. It hasn't. I'm still getting an fps of 15-35. My ping usually hangs around 30ish.

    I have turned all the graphics details right down and off where possible, using this guide, but it has made no difference. Basically, no matter what i do to the in game graphics settings, it does nothing compared to when its on the highest level (which the game automatically configured it to originally). I've also tried changing the DX level.. nothing.

    Computer Stats:
    processor: 3.2ghz P4
    RAM: 1gb Geil Dual Channel
    GFX: nVidia GeForce 7600GS 512mb
    monitor: Samsung LCD 710N 72hz
    Connection: ADSL2+ @~1.5mb/s

    My main question is... should i be getting more fps than i am currently (~25-35)?
    Help would be much appreciated...

    Hamwedges im sure you should be with your spec posted there im running:
    • 2.9ghz single core AMD 4000+
    • 2gb corsair xms2
    • 7600gt
    • dell monitor (17")
    and with that spec in the video stress test im gettin 158fps and in game using fraps im at leats 60-70fps in firefights and in less stressful bits its over 100 sometimes.

    have you updated your drivers?get the ones just before the latest ones (the 158 drivers dont work with the 7600 cards) as this upped my frame rate noticeable when i did

    Yea.. my driver's up-to-date. Ive tried the one from the nVidia website and i am currently using one from NGO. Neither of which makes much difference to my fps.
    In the Video Stress Test, i get 84 fps with the graphics options on full (which is what the game reccomends for my system) and the same when i have everything turned right down.

    Is it possible that a hot CPU could be causing my dramas?
    Mine's a Pentium 4, 3.2ghz... anyone know what sort of temp this should be running at?

    Allrighty.. ive fixed my problem... My processor is a prescot, and yes, it was running temperatures rivaling the sun (80-90 degrees).
    My CPU heatsync was full of dust and crap so by vacuuming that out and giving a small dollup of heatsync gel (Arctic Silver 5 - good stuff!), its brought my idle temp down about 30 degrees and my fps while playing CSS stay around 50-70 (max graphics settings).
    Also improved overall computer speed and stability.

    Yay!

    Before tweak - 64.4 fps
    After tweak - 84.82 fps!

    Dude! That's an extra 20 fps just for applying that simple tweak! :cool:

    Wow, thats weird because my setup is, Radeon 9800 @ 800x600 res. And i still only get like 40-60 fps and i did all the tweaks he said. and i have a better video card then you. and i dont even get 80+ fps what did i do wrong?

    I just bought a brand new Sony Vaio with Vista home premium, it was fine until i tried playing CS:S... I was getting an average of about 10 fps in any game i joined, making it virtually impossible to play, this sucked. I then ran the video stress test, which gave me an average of like 47 fps or so and i saw it top out around 100 i'm just thinking... wtf... I have a wireless N card and wireless N router and i normally get around 3.0 mbps, I have a 1.8 ghz core 2 duo, 2 gb 667mhz ram and x3100 intel graphic chip which either has or is sucking up 358mb of ram. I'm just curious why it would run so slow and I did get a boost of about 1 fps after doing the tweak, that made me frown a bit. Any help would make me pretty damn happy
