Specs inside

:sigh: Man. I know a lot of you are gonna freak out when I say my computer has only a total of 33 GB. It's been tough getting money for new hardware or a new computer. Anyways, I was wondering if I can use custom skins with these not-so-good-looking specs: System info - Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254) Language: English (Regional Setting: English) System Manufacturer: Dell Computer Corporation System Model: Dimension 2400 BIOS: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A05 Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz Memory: 510MB RAM Page File: 347MB used, 899MB available Windows Dir: C:\WINDOWS DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904) DX Setup Parameters: Not found DxDiag Version: 5.03.2600.2180 32bit Unicode Display Devices - Card name: NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 4000 Manufacturer: NVIDIA Chip type: GeForce4 MX 4000 DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0185&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_C1 Display Memory: 128.0 MB Current Mode: 1024 x 768 (32 bit) (60Hz) Monitor: Plug and Play Monitor Monitor Max Res: 1600,1200 Driver Name: nv4_disp.dll Driver Version: 6.14.0010.9371 (English) DDI Version: 9 (or higher) Driver Attributes: Final Retail Driver Date/Size: 10/22/2006 12:22:00, 4527488 bytes WHQL Logo'd: Yes WHQL Date Stamp: n/a VDD: n/a Mini VDD: nv4_mini.sys Mini VDD Date: 10/22/2006 12:22:00, 3994624 bytes Device Identifier: {D7B71E3E-42C5-11CF-2B47-0A2060C2CB35} Vendor ID: 0x10DE Device ID: 0x0185 SubSys ID: 0x00000000 Revision ID: 0x00C1 Revision ID: 0x00C1 Video Accel: ModeMPEG2_A ModeMPEG2_B ModeMPEG2_C ModeMPEG2_D Deinterlace Caps: {212DC723-3235-44A4-BD29-E1652BBCC71C}: Format(In/Out)=(YUY2,0x3231564e) Frames(Prev/Fwd/Back)=(0,0,1) Caps=VideoProcess_YUV2RGB VideoProcess_StretchX VideoProcess_StretchY DeinterlaceTech_MedianFiltering {335AA36E-7884-43A4-9C91-7F87FAF3E37E}: Format(In/Out)=(YUY2,0x3231564e) Frames(Prev/Fwd/Back)=(0,0,0) Caps=VideoProcess_YUV2RGB VideoProcess_StretchX VideoProcess_StretchY DeinterlaceTech_BOBVerticalStretch {212DC723-3235-44A4-BD29-E1652BBCC71C}: Format(In/Out)=(NV12,0x3231564e) Frames(Prev/Fwd/Back)=(0,0,1) Caps=VideoProcess_YUV2RGB VideoProcess_StretchX VideoProcess_StretchY DeinterlaceTech_MedianFiltering {335AA36E-7884-43A4-9C91-7F87FAF3E37E}: Format(In/Out)=(NV12,0x3231564e) Frames(Prev/Fwd/Back)=(0,0,0) Caps=VideoProcess_YUV2RGB VideoProcess_StretchX VideoProcess_StretchY DeinterlaceTech_BOBVerticalStretch Registry: OK DDraw Status: Enabled D3D Status: Enabled AGP Status: Enabled DDraw Test Result: Not run D3D7 Test Result: Not run D3D8 Test Result: Not run D3D9 Test Result: Not run

    I messed up the graphic card...
    Anyway, if you can run the game you can run custom skins.

    Well the real reason I'm asking this. I use to play with no more than 9 custom weapon skins. And it only lowered my FPS a little little tiny bit. But then I decided to be a moron and substitute ALL weapons with custom skins. I noticed my fps was horrible like this. Then I tried it a again with only 5 skins. It was as horrible as when I substituted all the custom skins! Did I damage my card or something. Any suggestions?
    meh.

    That video card sucks, especially in the context of D3D programs like CSS. You can get one for like $50 that's better. 512MB of RAM is shit, too.

    Anyways, you've probably got something that uses a shit ton of RAM or I guess with that video card might just be really fancy. You definitely don't want to be using this.

    No.

    Shouldnt.

    P4 2.8, Geforce 4, so much lag it'd be a waste of time.

    Amazed you can play well as it is.
