do you have TruForm enabled?

what drivers?

the thing that i am thinking the most of is:

do you have V-Sync enabled? because that would limit your FPS to 50 or 60 fps which is the refresh rate of your monitor.


does it ever drop below 50fps? i have a TI4200 and a Athlon 2000+ and never ever go below 99fps with 4xAF

1.6 or 1.5?

1.6 is a lot more demanding than 1.5 and does this happen when a lot of ppl on the screen or simply a few gun fires and frame dips?

HL engine is notorius for its slow speed when a lot of ppl on the screen. (engine limitation)

And the only map i can think off that lag the crap out my pc when no one around is aztec, my frame dip to 20-30 sometime on that map.

What's Counter-Strike's maximum fps limited to? To check, type fps_max in the console. If it's set to 50 or whatever, set it to fps_max 100 That should uncap the frames. Of course, HL and CS don't display over 100, not sure why.
