Default low err not so low fps?

Hey guys, i was wondering what fps i should be getting roughly on counterstrike with 1440X900 res? Im running a quad core, 8800 gts 2 gigs of ram ect. I ask because i am getting only 120-150, now i know this is high but considering counter strike source is an older game, and this rig is pretty good, i should be getting higher fps then 120, sometimes down to 90-100. Thanks guys!

120fps is beyond anything usable. So no problems there.

why... lol, talk about random assumptions? the source engine may not be the greatest, but it looks quite good and doesn't have high requirements...

well, it is hard to really compare different games like that. Every graphics engine has totally different.

What are the specs for your current computer? Giving us that info would be the best soulution to guesstimate how you will do.
