Lags on Counter Strike 1.6

Hello everyone, I have a very strange problem. When i play CS 1.6 i'm getting wierd FPS drops. While I can play GTA IV without any lag at all. And i dont know whats causing it, it isnt that the drivers is installed cuz they are.

My spec:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-890XA-UD3
CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 640 @ 3.0Ghz
GPU: GIGABYTE GTX 460 1GB OC
RAM: Cruzial BallistiX DDR3 4GB
HDD: Corsair Nova V128 128GB SSD (Raid 0)

Thx

  1. Counter-Strike: Source was recently moved over to the Orange Box engine, what you are describing is exactly what people who have been playing Team Fortress 2 have been dealing with since launch. The Orange Box Engine is horribly optimized and has driven FPS numbers down with every single update. As an example my current PC can max Crysis but I cannot pull 60+ FPS at all times while playing Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, etc.

    Your best bet is to go through the Video settings and disable the Shadows, HDR and if the Multi-Core support option is included with Counter-Strike now make sure it's enabled.

    Hopefully this has helped you.
  2. So the pc can handle it and no problem with it if it runs gta 4 well, then i would say bad cs install or simply Internet connection causing problem/server.
