I've been struggling for a while with this problem, and even gave up for a while, but I really want to get this figured out now. Heres what I have.. 1.6ghz P4 512mb ddr ram GeForceFX 5200 Ultra AGP XP Home Newest NVIDIA drivers, although I've tried a bunch of different ones Newest BIOS for card Freshly reformatted computer The problem is with Counterstrike (STEAM). I'm running OpenGL in 640x480, with ALL of my fps settings maximized, and all video settings on performance. I can only hold 100fps while I have nothing on screen, as soon as I hit find servers it drops down and searches between 30-55fps, sometimes going as low as 20fps. In-game I get about 50fps if I'm lucky. I am 200% confident that it is not a console-command that is wrong. Any ideas?
