Default XFX GeForce 7600GT Issues


I am new to this forum. I just purchased a XFX GeForce 7600GT (AGP) and had high hopes for it after reading numerous reviews saying this is one of the best card for the slowly dying AGP videocards. I went from a ATI 9600pro to this card and as of now i have not seen much of an improvement. My FPS playing CS Source was hovering around 20-30 and with the purchase of this card, i expected it to jump to at least 70. However, that has not been the case and my FPS has remain the same. I have downloaded the lastest driver (163.69)

Can anyone help me resolve this problem?

additional information on my computer:
CPU: AMD 64 3000+ winchester
Power Supply: 400W
Ram: 1 gig Kingston

have the same card as you and a slower cpu (2500 barton). I know my CPU is bottlenecking my fps. I'm guessing it's the same case. Congratz on wasting $.

yep CS:S is a CPU game meaning it uses more CPU power than GPU power. That card is a good card though. Use to have one myself.
