FPS problem

A Forum Thread for Counter-Strike: Source

Hi there, Got a new desktop, MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum, AMD 3200+, 512MB PC3200, 128MB GeForce 6800, 160GB SATA.. Get 3dMark03 scores of around 8800, but CSS FPS of only around 40-50 during gunfight! I've been told I can expect something more around 80... Is this correct? Any ideas why the in-game performance may not be as good as expected and how I can resolve them? Thanks a lot. Jason

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! Here's all I can suggest. Go to console and type "fps_max", it's normally at 60 i think, set it about 5fps higher than your monitors refresh rate for the resolution your running at. Hopefully your monitors refresh rates aren't crappy lol. If you have the fps_max set over 100, like me (I have mine at 125), your not going to see over 100 unless you enable developer mode by typing developer 1 I think. But that doesn't really matter, anything over 60fps should be fine anyway. WELL THATS ALL I CAN THINK UP OF. Peace Out ------------------------- WAKA WAKA CHEWBACCA!!! GLLLLLLLLLLLLL
