Hi, I was wondering what to upgrade?. I want to play CS:S at about 100fps.
Why? Your eyes won't be able to see anything faster than 25fps anyway so there comes a cut-off point where you can get the fps up but you won't actually notice it. As long as the system is able to give you a constant frame rate of anything above, say, 40fps on your preferred graphics settings, you're okay.
Your system specs date from about three years ago now, I have similiar specs (see profile). This is Socket A technology so it essentially sucks compared to what you can get today. You can change the board and processor to a new generation 939 and if you shop around a bit, one can get them both for about £200 at this time, or you can go for cheaper upgrade route of about £70 for a socket 754 board with a Sempron 2800 processor and take the rest of your stuff with you over to it.
But having said that, and that you want 100fps as it is, what sort of frame rate are you getting now?
