    Have you done anything to try and fix it?

    First thing to try is updating the video drivers. www.nvidia.com has them.

    If that doesn't fix it then there are more questions to be asked, like is it this way from the start, or does it get worse after a few minutes?

    Your DirectX is listed as 6, that seems odd to me. Should be 9 or 10 or 11 depending on your OS. So you might want to check WindowsUpdate and see if there is a newer version. The 6 may not be what I'm thinking of anyway, so I wouldn't be too concerned about that at this point, I doubt CSS would even run on DX6.

    The 8800 GTS 512 should be insanely fast at that resolution with that game.

    i think you need driver updates man looks like yours are from october last year. have you made sure that no power connections are loose on the video card ? also may want to clean out the heatsink on the video card
