  1. I have a dell dimension 3000 from like 2005 (dont flame me!)
    stock everything- except I bought a new GeForce 5200 (pci, cause thats my only bus type)
    I currently run Cs 1.6 with no tweaks or anything at a max 160, lowest 80 average fps.
    usually I hang around 120.

    Will I be able to play CS:S without wanting to rip my face off from lag?

    There probably won't be any lag, FPS will not be high though.

    exactly what are your CS 1.6 settings?

    what do you mean? basically only things I changed were my video card settings, which i set 3D graphics stuff to performance.

    Well...1.6 doesn't really have too many advanced graphics options, but what resolution are you running at?

    If you are running 1.6 at 640 x 480 resolution, i can tell you right now CSS will not look good.

    Well, you should be able to run it reasonably well...probably.
