How can I increase my frame rate? I currently have a X700 Pro AGP, AMD Athlon XP 2400, 80GB Exelstor master, 20GB Quantuim fireball, 500W ebuyer extra value power supply, 1GB Crucial DDR400 RAM. I'm currently getting 20fps on CS:S :whistling:

Any help would be appreciated,

Kurt

How many background tasks are running while you play? Too many apps will slow down even the fastest comp.

done both of them still get a low frame rate. The only thing I can think of would be to upgrade to an athlon 64 3700 but how much would that increase my frame rate by? All I want is to be able to play CS:S at about 50-60fps or higher if possible. If upgrading is the only option which would be a good motherboard to go for with AGP?

Thanks,

Kurt

Warrior, I have McAffee and it doesnt' make a diff. on or off in CS:S...guess they fixed that?

Second, Kurt, I'm not CPU junkie but I know that my system (see below) plays CS:S in the higher realms of FPS :whistling:

go to http://www.omegadrivers.net and download and install their drivers. their drivers are more optimized that ATI's.
