    is see no video card listed...is yours on board?? if so that may be your problem, and to be honest if it is an onboard video 50fps in CSsource is pretty good...

    alright then try this...it may help...if you use atitooltray that is..


    1.change your texture and Mipmap detail to lower settings
    2.make sure that AA and AF are in the off or app. controlled position
    3.dont use Temporal AA especially if you are using AA as well...lags out bad..
    4.set Catalyst AI to low or off
    5.flip queue size to Undefined
    6.check Geometry Instancing
    7.uncheck alternate pixel centers
    8.make sure Vertical Sync is app. controlled

    try those and let us know...

    above 50 you won't see much difference, have you runned any benchmarks and compared them?
    your cpu could be bottlenecking it
    what is your ram speed and timmings?
    do you have the latest ccc installed?
    what do you have running on background while playing?

    i dont' remember the exact score but the last time i ran it it was over 1000 below 1200

    Man i really dont' know what is going on. when it really lags the fps drops below 15 and all hell breaks loose.

    could it be the power being supplied?
