Counter Strike Source FPS Problem

  1. I know there's a million and one css fps threads on the internet, but I really want to play this fricken game. I have an Intel Celeron Processor which runs at 2.4 ghz, 1.24 Gb of RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce 5200. If I go to the nvidia control panel and put the slider to performance instead of quality I get 80 fps on the stress test and only around 25 fps when I play online, even with everything on low settings and a huge fps config. If I leave the control panel on default settings I get around 40 fps on the stress test and still about 20-25 online. Please help me!!!!

    P.S. Don't tell me how bad my computer is, I already know. Some people can't afford to go spend an arm and a leg just to play a video game.

    I have a link here:

    If you use caseys config, you should get good fps.

    I had the same computer, vbasically, lemme guess, Dell Deminsion 2400?

    It is always going to be nearly unplayable unless you a)upgrade or b)deal wiht the 20fps.

    While I agree (duh) with nearly everything on that list, I would go with opera, if you like it better, because it is faster than even the latest version of Firefox, even with Dial up!
