  1. Hi,

    I have a Q6600 CPU clocked @ 2.4 ghz
    GTX 260 graphics card, ( i overclocked it, but other games work fine
    2gb ram

    Until 3 months ago TF2 worked just fine almost maxing the 60 fps limit.
    Suddenly in SLIGHTLY intense moments im lucky if i get 5 - 10 fps!!
    please help

    As a '' benchmark '' i Play resident evil 5 and my FPS are 55 - 60.

    probably due to a steam client update, which is not uncommon to say the least.

    try posting the issue on steam forums

    installed new drivers recently?

    Mods can act as a really bad person sometimes. They can **** up a game easily. Can you list your computer specs please.

    maybe check the game's file fragments within steam... because that setup is fine for TF2 and most other source engine games.

    Like EXCell had said before, it may be a good idea to fragment TF2's game files through Steam. If that fails,you could try to uninstall and then reinstall TF2,but I don't really know if that will help much...

    i don't remember the exact location, but from your games list you need to bring up the game's properties by right-clicking. a window should pop up and under one of the tabs it should show how fragmented the game files are. it probably won't be a lot, as steam keeps its games quite optimized on the disk, but i've had to defrag a few of my installations. not a big deal, takes like 5min tops.

    well i defragmented the Team fortress 2 game file and there IS a 5fps increase, however im still getting really slow fps :( :/

    EDIT: ok im defragmenting with steam now XD i didnt notice you told me to do it with steam, ill edit again to see what happened.

    EDIT 2: no difference....
