Anyway I used to have a crappy fx5200 agp8x 256mb card. I could play counterstrike just fine with 40-70fps but its an old game
counterstrike source is a whole different story getting around 15-20fps normally and sometimes in a small confined hall it will shoot all the way up to 60fps
pretty much every other game i have i got really crappy fps in and not all of them even close to the graphics in Source.
So I ordered an ATI 9600XT
I used ATI Tool to overclock my old fx5200 and in 3d view i was getting like 21fps average. Went back to ATI Tool after I put in my 9600xt and I averaged 61fps
Id say thats a huge difference

Now for the problem.. In all my games I have tried my fps is pretty much exactally the same as with my old card. So I was wondering if there is something that could be holding my card back? Like my ram or cpu or anything that could cause this if it might not be working properly

Thanks for your time
