Default Low FPS in CSS with an 8800GTS?

Well, not really "low". But way lower than I've had it when I got it...


Normally I get about 190-210 FPS, lately its only been around 60-90.



You can see my specs in the sig, any ideas?

169.21 is still the latest from nvidia for XP, there are some 174.xx beta floating around that are getting mixed reviews (Guru3D) if you want to try them, XP is good Vista not so hot iirc.

Do you have Vsync on? As this limits your frame rate to your refresh rate.

Yeah, sounds like VSync, as the typical refresh rate is something like that.

Nope. It's a setting associated to how the video plays in sync with the monitor settings.

You can disable it in the game settings, or go into the Nvidia Control Panel, click on Manage 3D Settings, and in the following drop down menus on the right, disable it for all games or only the games you select.

I was under the impression Vsync had a 60 fps limit, I may be wrong I have been before

The op states he's getting 60-90 fps.
