    evan if i close the game and steam and start it up again, still lag. I have to restart my computer to get it to tun smooth agen (but then agen after 20 mins it lags)

    specs:
    3800+ 2.0gig duel core AMD64 Athlon x2
    One x1900 crossfire edition 512mb PCI-E Card
    2GIG OCZ DDR2
    520 PSU, 12v rail (28A)
    MSI K9A Platinum crossfire motherboard
    120gig 7200rpm drive

    If any one has any idear what might be up with my games, please help

    Sounds like a heat issue, get speedfan from the downloads section and use it to monitor all your temperatures.

    i been looking at temps since i built the pc last week and they been fine, here they are ne way

    idle:
    Temp1:33c
    Temp2:30c
    Temp3:30c
    HD0: 40c
    Core: 26c

    When player counter strike right up till the point i get lag:
    Temp1:36c
    Temp2:33c
    Temp3:35c
    HD0: 40c
    Core:32c

    in net_graph 3 i noticed my choke has been goin up to 12 at times...usually around 0, but often goin to 5-6.

    im not sure on the whole rates thing or evan how to change them, but could this be a problem too (it cant be causing the lag in half life 2 cus that dont use the internet.)

    my connection is:

    dsl
    2meg down
    i think about 256k up(i might be wrong)
