    There is no helping you:

    50 and higher FPS is excellent.

    Second video graphics card. Second performance issue. Increase your memory, and get a better power supply.

    Have you properly removed the drivers of the previous card ?

    Anything over 25 is actually good...

    Now if you have crashes and rubberbanding and other extremely irritating issues...

    7600GT is not a great card these days, anything near 50 FPS in newer games would be awesome for that card.

    Basically we need more info on actual problems, FPS rate is not an actual problem. 8)

    another thing is that when i start playing cs 1.6 i get a stable 100fps for the first minute no matter how much ppl are on screen, but then after that minute it drops down to 90 aand below. i'll try those drivers, im currently using the 94.24 drivers
