Question about FPS in Counter-Strike 1.6

Hey,

I recently got a PC with the following specs:

Case - Tuniq Symmetry Gaming Tower Case w/500W NZXT PS
Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6600
Processor Cooling - Stock HSF
Motherboard - Asus P5N-E SLI nForce 650i SLI Chipset
Memory - Corsair XMS2 Xtreme 1024MB DDR2-800 PC6400
Video Card - eVGA NVIDIA GeForce 7950GT 512MB
Hard Drives - 2 x [Serial ATA-150, 10,000 RPM] WD Raptor WD740GD 74.0GB 8M Cache Hard Drive (RAID0)

Considering that I haven't OC'ed yet, how many smokes in CS 1.6 should I expect to drop my fps with the latest drivers (Forceware 93.71)?

Side note: My CPU/Mobo temps are pretty low I think...when idle they're at 25/26 and when playing cs they go up to 30/38 respectively.

    What does that mean?
  2. Yeah man, what does smokes mean?
  3. Smokes (smoke grenades) using particle effects to create a smoke effect.

    There's no way to tell... but I would expect it would take a s*itload because thats a beast of a system for a game from 1998 (?)

    Side note: low temps are good!

    1 smoke will drop your fps, 2 will drop it more, 200 will drop it nice and low.
  5. Well put =P
  6. The way he stated it made it confusing. I thought that was what he was talking about though. Your fine. Enjoy the graphics on 1.6. You don't need a heavy duty computer to run 1.6, thats for sure.
  7. LOLz...
    I have cs 1.6 and I play at over 300 fps .... Please dont worry about your FPS and the amount of smokes you have. It will NOT drop the fps at unplayable rates.

    Edit: You should try CS:Source. Im sure your comp will handle it just fine.
  8. :lol: :lol:

    i doubt source would even stress that computer 8O


    jus dont worry bout it man


    how many smokes? lets say a couple hundred all at the same time.. yeah maybe that will cut 1 fps off.. :o
  9. :P


    LMAO!

    He isnt running an 8800gtx here, dont overestimate the power of his pc. Maybe 3fps... :lol:
  11. Btw cook, you didnt buy that pc just for 1.6 did you?

    lol!

    I damn well hope not :P

    pretty sure he has some other games in mind that are yet to be released or have just been released (time span of 1 year)
  13. No lol, i didn't buy the PC just for 1.6, but I just want to compare it to other people's numbers. I'll never run into a situation where my fps should drop, but i just want to know what numbers to expect, that's all. Also, an old game like cs 1.6 DOES use both cores when running right? That issue of only one core running should have been taken care of without any manual fix right?

    Thanks again
  14. I have a p4 3.2ghz prescott and a radeon 9800proSE

    I get 300+ fps on 1.6.
  15. i don't understand...cs 1.6 should be played with developer 0 not developer 1...if i did i'd get like 1000 fps, i'm just wondering about smokes and how many it takes for ppl to start dropping their fps.
  16. It depends on what quality of smoke as well, but I'm assuming you mean the highest.

    1.6 smoke is not complexe enough to kill fps. Source smoke is.

    I think 2 smokes, zoomed in w/an awp would put the system I speced to you at 60 fps...

    i think.
  17. so technically with a c2d cs will be running on one 2.4 GHz processor and won't touch the second one? Mmmmm
  18. But windows can run background tasks on the second core, dedicating the first to the game.
  19. my old geforce2 mx400 can play this game any day
  20. in all honesty, no one should worry about fps now a days in 1.6.. its like super old.. i can run that with some serious eye candy on a 6800gs and still have good rates.. @ 1680 x 1050 mind you..
  21. Let me put it to you this way.You will never have a problem with FPS when playing cs1.6 with that system.
