    Get a better Gfx card, a faster processor, and at least half a gig more of RAM. Youll be good for just about anything after that.

    You guys realize that CS:S barely takes any RAM. I run all high on 800 x 600 and get 101 constantly. anistropic 16x, antialias 4x and hdr at bloom. So you guys obviously don't know a thing. And 40gb hard drive...Thats not little. I use only 19% of it.

    CSS uses approximately 600MB of RAM regardless of settings. I gather if you don't have 600MB available, it loads some into VRAM where it might have some impact. (Probably not much since 600MB is so absurd.) From there, your video RAM comes in and the game tries to pack as much shit into it as possible. Even the stupid menu background can slow you down. As long as the game doesn't need to swap anything around in video RAM, the only way to get a significantly better framerate is better hardware.

    I wouldn't know any of that, but I've actually tried to get the best framerate possible but found out I can't beat ~150fps avg on de_dust2 even in 640x480 shit mode with my system. Basically, where ever the frame rate ticker stops moving is your best setting.

    It'll be a long time before CSS makes like Quake 2.

    FOR FUCKS SAKE!!! If you already know those settings work for you, then why the fuck did you make a thread asking a question about what settings you should use, and then go and tell people that they are wrong, when it was you asking the question in the first place!?! Fuck off..

    Running the game on that resolution on high looks terrible anyway unless your monitor is like a 6 inch CRT.
