  1. I Have Installed And Played Counter Strike Source. With My Radeon 9800 Pro The Graphics Are Great! Although My Fps Is Very Low. 18-35. I Have Tried More Power E.g. 350 W And I Still Cant Get My Fps To Go Higher. One Thing That I Have Noticed Is That I Have 2 Memory Stick Of 512 Mbs Each But They Run @ 133 Mhz. Could This Be My Problem? I Hear That I Have The Old Sdram System And I Cant Do Anything About It Unless I Get A New Mother Board.. Is This Correct?

    Well that aint gonna help us out much. What OS are you running, and when you say you cant play...what do you mean? Do you get an error, does it get my drift.

    FPS Problem sloved (Desktop PCs Solution)

    Hi guys hope this will prove interesting. Here is a little solution to most desktop pc for gaining a proper preformance in Counter Strike Source.

    1. Make sure your graphic card is better then Ge Force 5200 and u have at least 512 mb ram.

    2. If above is correct go to your bios setup (when u switch your computer press del key/f2 key and a setup will come up):

    a) In the chipset page make sure your memory timing settings are set to SPD/Auto.
    b) Fin option called "AGP Aparature size" or alike. There u select amount of memory which is supporting your GPU in demanding applications. Chose the amount coresponding to the amount of memory your graphic adpater posses.
    c) Save your setings and startup again.
    d) Enjoy Cs Source.

    PS: It would also add to a flavour if u use well tweaked drivers have fun!!!


    Imposible - No just lies!!
