Getting Low FPS with New Video Card

  1. i recently had a geforce 4200 ti 128mb and played counter-strike with always getting 100+ fps. i just bought a geforce 6800 gt 265mb so i could play doom3 and painkiller better. what gets me is that when i play cs with my new card, my fps drops to around 40 and stays there, and every now and then bumps up to 100+. this is really irritating and makes no sense to me. can anyone help me?

    what are your computer specs?
    your video card is only good as the what the computer is running
