How to increase framerate

April 16, 2006 at 17:41:35
Specs: WinXP, 1320/512
When i play counter strike source, it gets laggy in firefights, i think this is framerate related because i ran the video stress test and i got approx 50fps. I've set everything to lowest settings including the res. I've also updated to the latest drivers. I have a nvidia geforce fx 5200. I setted the launch options for cs source to launch in directx 8.1. Is there any other ways to increase my framerate?

The FX5200 isn't a very good card, but you shouldn't be experiencing any lag at 50FPS. Then again, since you said "it gets laggy in firefights", your FPS maybe dropping out when there's too much on-screen activity. You might wanna consider a video card upgrade, & increasing your RAM to 1GB certainly wouldn't hurt.

Have you tried shutting down background programs while gaming?

You can increase your framerate also by going to your driver control panel (I don't know how it is called with nvidia), but I mean the screen "advanced" options in configuration. There you will find a slider that goes from perfomance to quality, set it all the way to performance.

hmm I'd say defrag your hard drive and clean windows from all useless starting programs.
