  1. hey i think i might have a pci overflow. i'm not sure if it is but it is possible. i have a nVidia Geforce FX 5700LE in one pci slot and a wireless card in the other. i want to be able to play counter-strike 1.6 and keep ventrilo on at the same time but whenever i have both on at the same time, my counter-strike would lag. i would be able to look at empty spaces and stuff but when i see people it'll lag or sometimes i'll randomly spike really bad. my comp specs are this if it helps:

    pentium 4 2.0 ghz
    512 RAM
    nVidia Geforce FX 5700LE
    mobo- ASUS P4G533LA with an i845GL chipset

    thanks for any help. btw anyone know what the latest driver for my vid card is?

    You have onboard lan

    Maybe try without wireless and go direct with onboard lan and see how
    the game runs.
    Might also be the way wireless is setup, let us know how it goes.

    thanks, but my uncle probably won't let me run a wire for lan since he's the one taht setted everything up. how would i be able to check if there is something with the wireless setup? i'm gonna have to stick with the card since my uncle bought it and all, he's not gonna let me just throw it off then run a wire.
