What do you think my fps would average at? THX T_T

Hi everyone, I'm new to this site... Well I used to go here about 3-4 years ago under a different name. Love the site btw. Anyways I have just recently purchased a new computer with these specs: CPU: AMD Phenom(TM) 9650 quad-core processor [2.3GHz] GPU: 1GB NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT RAM: 4GB DDR2-800MHz dual channel SDRAM [4x1024] OS: Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1 (64-bit) HDD: 320GB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive It ships tomorrow. And I can barely stand anymore wait. So I've been googling information about similar specs and I've read people having like 20-30 fps average on CSS with about the same components as mine. This is the same fps average I get on my current computer, which is running on a intel duo core cpu @ 1.6 ghz and a mobile intel express chipset for the gpu (dx9 - everything set to high - no AA)! So my questions are approximately what my average fps will be for my new computer with or without AA and is there anything I can do to improve it? Thanks a bunch everyone who reads and/or replies. Oh and if this is in the wrong section or if its against the rules, please forgive me.

    I wouldn't be worrying about fps with that computer, not on CS:S at least.

    Hey guys, thanks for the quick replies.

    I wasn't trying to be a showoff, I had just read on other forums about people getting unusually low fps with about the same specs as mine. Thanks again though.

    Who says they got lag with those specs?

    They must be like having an older computer and lying about their specs.

    Counter strike source is Not going to use all 1GB of your video memory, 512mb would give you nearly identical performance.

    Everything maxed out you prolly get around 120+ FPS. My mate has a crappy 3Ghz AMD with a 3850 and he gets a solid 80FPS with everything maxed out. =]

    Thanks for your comments guys.

    The reason I got the 1 GB is because it was the only one available on the site I had purchased it from. I was going to build my own as I have the knowledge and capability, but my parents don't trust me. :P

    And 120+ (or even 80+) fps was just about what I was looking for. ;)
