I've recently pruchased a PC for gaming and casual application work.
The main game i play atm is Counter Strike Source After installing all the latest drivers and the game i loaded it up, Jumped into a server and found myself playin at 40 FPS ( i was expecting alot more). I was instantly concerned and tryed to improve it, and i was still only gettin 50 FPS on lowest settings. I am worried that there is a Hardware Coflict or BottleNecking of some sort.
Any help would be much appreciated.

RAM should be fine, thats like....oooh i dident know they made Q8400, i learned something today. Ever consider your PSU might be the one thats bottlenecking your system? Ive never heard of EZCool torando, how do people find these PSU's, seriously. You can also try overclocking your CPU, but i doubt youll get a large performance boost
