Heat could be from heatsink not making full contact to CPU. Possibly fans blocked (ie. dust). Fans stopped. Not enough fans. Tons of reasons.

Try video card drivers. That's the only reason i can think of why your computer doesn't run CS:S good. Other than that, your specs are above the recommended specs for CS:S.

yeh thats what i was thinking like in css there is a video stress test which gives you an average fps alot of the time im getting from 20-40 but the odd few times iv had over 100 so i know its capable of doing it just annoying that it isnt performing

Could be a virus/malware/spyware/overheating. First run scans for everything and dust out your computer with compressed air, make sure you get all of the fans and heatsinks.

also try disabling all ur unwanted start up programs.

CSS has had a few updates recently, and added HDR to some maps, which is automatically turned on. think dust1 has it. ull need to turn that off to get the best fps.
