    That computer should have no problems running CS:S at a playable frame rate. According to the benchmarks, the MSI 6600GTs are at least as good as the average 6600GT.
    Do you have performance issues in other games? Can you give a 3DMark result? It may help isolate the problem. If every other game runs fine, then the problem will be much easier to find.

    what drivers do u have? updated to the latest driver. (81.98 i think) and jus leave everything default at first.

    if that doesnt work:
    go into ur nvidia settings (it should be on the taskbar, if not, right click n go to properties > settings.. click advanced and then the 6600GT tab)

    in there click Performance & Quality Settings. and play around with the settings there. i recommend leaving settings to 'application controlled' or somethin
