Default My 8600 GTS..

My eVGA 8600 GTS 256MB gets higher FPS and runs at a higher resoltuion without crashing in Counter-Strike : Source than the original Counter-Strike.

I find that odd. I get 180 FPS at 1400x1050 in CSS, and 60 FPS at 1200x900 in CS.

I wonder why.

did you turn vertical sync off? try adjusting fps_max in the console in cs 1.6, type "fps_max 300" in the console (enabled in advanced keyboard settings, uses key ~)

60 is the fps cap for vertical sync (if thats your refresh rate)

My fps_max is already at 300. I shall check out this vertical sync thing. Maybe it has something to do with Direct X.
