    First of all.. my PC specs:
    Pentium 4, 1.60 ghz. 384mb (SD)RAM, Nvidia 5200 geforce.

    I recently bought an ATI RADEON X-800 PRO/GTO .. and while I play this game, Counter Strike 1.6 (on OPENGL), the game lags. As in.. the keys respond slowly sometimes.. if u know what i mean.

    It happens at regular intervals. And my ping is real high. This never happened before with my Nvidia card when i played the same game.

    I think my pc isn't able to support the G.card? If that's the issue, it's no problem because I'm buying a new motherboard (DDR supported), 3ghz processor etc etc

    What do you say? =/

    no offence here but your rig must be scraping the min reqs(ram defo) for most games now.

    only thing i can think is to make sure all your drivers are upto date and hope for the best.

    Requirements for the game

    Minimum:
    500 mhz processor, 96mb ram, 16mb video card, Windows 2000/XP/ME/SE, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection

    Recommended: 800 mhz processor, 128mb ram, 32mb+ video card, Windows 2000/XP, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection

    What puzzles me is that the game was fine when played with my 5200. And now there are problems =/
