You might have vertical sync installed if it sticks at about 60 or 70fps. If it goes any lower, i doubt it can be that.

If so, go to the video card settings and disable vertical sync (as I don't think it does much good anyway and just makes sure the video card renders frames as the monitor can handle them and can make people think something is wrong)

In the game check also in settings that it is disabled.

Hope this helps, as nothing else I don't think could be causing it. Not on a card like that

EDIT: Though 60 would be quite high for an FPS in some parts of the game on that card

Make sure in CS:S that you don't have the "maxfps" command in because then your FPS is capped. Also make sure that you have the latest drivers for your card installed.
