I have some issues with my new box hopefully someone can help me sort them out. Here are the specs.
Asus m2n sli-deluxe
AMD 5200+ x2
2gigs gskill timings @ 4-4-3-5
Nvidia XTX 8600GT 256ram
250gig sata drive @7200rpms
Random sound card
Netgear wireless card
XP home sp2
My onboard sound doesn't work (seems to be an issue with the board).
Onboard lan doesn't work, it says its a 1394 net adapter and I did some research 1394 is firewire @ 400mb/s. Whenever I plug it into the network via cat5 wire it says it's connected at 400mb/s but my router doesn't recognize it and when I do an ipconfig it doesn't return anything. I wanna go to a lan party soon, but would be pointless if lan doesn't work...
When I play CSS, sometimes my latency spikes up and I can't do anything (after joining game). I can browse games through steam fine (under 100ms latency) but when I open and try to browse through CSS I rarely get any results, I select all for my filters in latency, and I only return a few with very HIGH latencies. I don't think it's my box or my connection, I think it's something to do with the game, I tried messing with rates not much luck. Sometimes I can play but after a while my latency spikes and makes the game unplayable. Can't even join a team.
Thanks a lot!
