Smoke lags my mouse and creates abnormaly bad FPS in CSS

  1. Whenever i play CSS, smoke from smoke grenades or he grenades seem to lag my mouse a lot (almost a second while in the middle of a single smoke), and lower my FPS to about half in the middle of a smoke. When an HE explodes on screen, my mouse lags, my FPS goes to about 80 - 90, while my game DOES NOT LAG (guns shoot at a consistant rate, sound is normal, visually seems normal as i can't move my mouse fast enough to notice the fps drop).

    I don't think this has ever happened before and seems like a recent issue.

    When i played at max settings a while ago, 16 x AA, 1920 x 1200, and all advanced settings set to highest, i only noticed slightly problematic FPS, never mouse lag or FPS going to half (50 - 60 fps)

    Now, i use all default graphical settings form Kaizens config attached as a txt, and yes mouse filter is disabled. Usually, i get about 120fps before i execute my config, and get a consistent 100 fps because of the cap in my config.

    I did at one point use custom skins which did NOT lag whatsoever, and have since removed the skins and reinstalled.

    Core 2 duo E4600 @ 2.4ghz
    9600gt (underclocked while i play css at 490/1225/675 (1350) core/shader/mem, overclocking marginally improves FPS, but not mouse lag)
    2 gigs DDR2 800
    24" monitor, 2ms and 60 hz
    Windows XP SP2
