100FPS really doesn't matter since you can't tell the difference once it gets that high.

Make sure your computer has enough free resources before you play, ie turn off background programs, maybe disable anti-virus, etc.

You could also try restarting before you play to make sure your computer is running at it's best. How fresh is your windows install? An old install can def effect the computer's performance.

Its very fresh...just reformatted 2 days ago. umm i can tell a big difference when my fps drops. Like I was in an awp_map server and I had 100 fps when I spawn but then when I went into battle I get like 40-100 fps and its real laggy. My ping is between 50-60.

your problem is in your code.

I get 90 fps in CS:S with a 1800gto

change your code to this

fps_max 99

1.6 cant go higher then 100, it will flaot around 98.8 fps and 99.9

HAHA YOU guys are noobs.
I have a evga geforce 7600 GT 256mb that i got from cc like 5 week ago for 1 dollar. but anyways that was a killer deal. but my fps is at 100 all the time. Just type fps max 999999 and change the rate to 20000. I also can get more than 100 fps if i put developer 1 i get around 300 constantly.

Man.. your comp should easily handle 1.6 at those low settings and keep it at 100+.

My old comp had a 9800proSE, 3.2Ghz prescott and would regularly stay over 100 (with developer 1)

nVidia should have new drivers and stuff available so that you can get a hardware monitor. Keep that running and check what everything is at. If you see a lot of jumps (that don't coincide w/alt+tabs), then you might be lacking power to run everything.

What type of PSU is it? Just some no-name or a decent brand?

edit: sorry, posted before reading your last reply.

replace -freq 100 with -dxlevel7 in your command line.

PS. I run cs1.6 100fps solid on athlon xp 2800+@2.21ghz(177*12.5), 1gb RAM, bfg 6800gt oc and a thermaltake 430W psu.

you do have your onboard video disabled... right?

1st it can either be the config file in steam that is mess up some how.
2nd it can either be missing around with the setting in steam.
3rd you have some virus/adware on your computer. There is no way in the world it can be your computer harddrive.
June 26, 2007 4:15:30 AM

A bad harddrive can totally contribute to slow computer performance.

how about a hdd that is hot? can that lower fps/performance?
