I have recently put together a system consisting of the parts below:
Athlon 3200+ 64 processor
Asus AV8 M'Board
Geforce 6600 GT 3d Card
Seagate Barracuda 160gb HDD
2 x 512mb Crucial memory.
I have performed the video stress test that came with Counter Strike but the best I can get is 22.8fps.
I know that it can do better but i've tried eveything I can think of, have updated my bios for motherboard, have fixed the bug that I heard about where the motherboard drivers did not support my processor.
Have just installed the latest 3d card drivers but that only put the frame rate up by 0.8fps.
