    Hi guys, i cant play CS source,

    System, 6800GS, 3700+ and 2 gigs of Gskill.

    Right the stress test scores 130fps

    But when ever i play the game, the FPS stays around 100-150 for about 2 seconds then drops to about 10 (red numbers) and its constantly does this, producing a very jerky game..

    Any ideas please

    have you got the latest drivers for your graphics card (not beta) and check for Direct X updates

    If you have got the latest drivers, try dropping back a couple of versions as sometimes driver setups really mess up peoples frame rates.

    Hi mate,

    Ive got DX 9.0c installed and the 81.98's

    Funny thing happened, just did a fresh install, installed CS again, did the stress test: fine no problems, then did it on the recommended settings: no problems, changed vert sync: FPS lower considerably, changed it back and there seem to be purple glitches everythere, as in, purple coloured floor..

    This is doing my head in, i really want to play cs!!!

    is there anyway of uninstalling DX and reinstalling it?
