This is probably redundant but after looking thru pages of threads I had to give up and ask;

Very low FPS with a GTX 260... Even worse than the Radeon x1950 I replaced. Even at minimum settings I get crap fps we are talking as low as 50ish.

Please advise

Blame CS:S? What renderer are you using?

Might be a driver problem. I use to have a EVGA 260 core 216 and it ran counter strike great.

What is your power supply? Have you added any new memory lately, my friend had the exact same issue and it was because one of his sticks had gone bad. Thus making his performance quite inconsistent until we discovered the issue.

Best,

Running a Corsair 550, seems fine for my setup. I am curious about my ram, I tried to get memtest to run but didn't.. I need to look into that more.
All my other games run fine though..

COD 4 and 5 - Crysis, sup commander, company of heros, etc etc. Everything else I load runs great on high settings 1680x1050

Q6600 @ 3ghz
4 Gig ram ddr2 5-5-5-18
GTX 260 Core 216 mild overclock
64 bit ultimate
550W Corsair

Its not my system. I run crysis, COD 4/5, Warhammer 2, Company of heros, Supreme Commander- 1680/1050 screen at high resolution and my machine runs smooth on all..

CS:Source sucks, and I can't figure out why.... I updated driver I think it helped a little but still get fps spikes low... Wierd, but I don't really care because I am about done with CS anyway.

I got u man ... i understand .... i only play CS: Source because im loving some Chernobyl maps made for Source ...... im very into the holw Chernobyl disaster and so im very addicted about it ..... but if wasnt for that id probably leave CS for good ........... but the fact thats keeping f''ing with my mind is the thought that maybe my videocard is broken or something .... i just get angry when i enter a server on CS:Source and i get enough fps alone on the map ..... but after someone enters or i add a bot ... the frames keep going down like s..t .... now i know that my junk here is far more capabble of running Source on Max no mather what ..... with my old 9600 GSO it went, so i dont doubt .... but when i see those hell frames .... aaaahhhh the irony !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! X(X(X(X( i tried everything i could .... only left for me to do is to try it on a bigger Power Suply .... my is a little small for the gtx260 ..... (Thermaltake TR2 470W real) ........ maybe il get back to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series & COD4 Modern Warfare again, as the Chernobyl scene is pretty heavy to be found in these games :D  ..... forget the CS:Source s..it ..... someday maybe it will run smooth again :D  ....... when we are not going to even play it anymore :D  .... cheers mate
