    Still need some more details,

    what evga motherboard?
    Your CPU is an AMD64 X2, but what model CPU is it? What do you mean by PCI?
    What speed is your ram? PC3200?
    What make is your power supply?

    If you don't know the answer to any of these questions, there are probing programs you can download to get the info. Everest is a good one:

    You have some nice specs! Now we just have to get it working for you ;)

    That 6200 card is an interesting card. Not really a true gaming card, but it should be able to handle CS. Are you ONLY having problems with counter strike? Any other games crashing on you?

    Next, can you give us a detailed description of what goes wrong? WHEN do your problems happen, and EXACTLY what happens?

    Crashes can be caused by hundreds of different things, so I am just trying to get as much info as I can out of you in order to try and narrow it down to a few dozen things before making suggestions.
