Default Rumor control: Battlefield 2 is more demanding than CS:S?

I have heard from many that BF:2 is more demanding than CS:S. Well, i have BF:2 on max and seem to be getting a much higher framerate than what i usually get in CS:S.

Rig:

Nvidia geforce 7800gt vanilla

amd athlon 64 3700+ processor

1 gig dual channel ram

Is there any explanation for this?

Are you playing CS:S online and BF2 offline? That may be the reason otherwise I dont know.

Yeah, playing offline is way speedier than online. CS:S isn't that demanding though. It runs pretty well on most computer younger than two or three years.

i think the limiter is 300.. so i wouldnt see why it matters, only if you have vsync on at least, it limits it to 60 fps.. and i'm not 100 percent sure if 300 is the limit, cuz i never hit higher than 299 on the cs stress test

My fps in BF:2 is much higher during combat than during combat in CS:S. My overall fps is also with the same relation. I have all settings on high except for lighting and 4x antialiasing.

Maybe nvidia cards just don't like cs:s?
