    If your not using the catalyst drivers I suggest you make the switch. They are highly optimised to work with the source engine which is why ATi beats GeForce on benchmark tests with Half-Life 2.

    i went thru the dirext x versions in the console and i hit 67 fps wth dx7 but thats shitty ass quality...i have the microsoft version of ati drivers installed...no extra catalyst and dvd stuff.....i turned alot of console things down.....i have to look to see how far i can go with my mobo cuz i know it dont go over 3.4 or so.....and is theie a signifcant increase in performance with 8x agp....

    I dunno, I have a 9200 and I get better than that. try updating your drivers and see if that helps at all. Otherwise just upgrade everything. Thats what I'm doing. Your first priority should be that nasty celeron. Rip it out and put in a nice P4. Make sure you get the socket 478 version if you do upgrade otherwise it wont work with your motherboard.

    Another option is to get some mod drivers for that radeon. Omega or DNA mod drivers are your best bet but UnIAN is woth a look too. Only use these if you've got some decent experience with computers cause if you get t wrong they can take some time to get right. Just remember to set a system restore point before you install.

    Yes it's a good gfx card, but running at 4x AGP. And your processor will seriously bottleneck you in CSS.

    You're worried about the stress test? Anyway, it is a stress test, so don't expect the best fps you'll ever reach.
