I'm not a gamer, I *only* play a 9 year old game, Counter Strike 1.6. But lately, it's been performing very poorly.
Intel Pentium D 2.8GHz
Nvidia 7300LE 256MB
1 GB DDR2 RAM
I know the stats are terrible, but they're good enough for a TEN year old game. I'd expect a minimum 40FPS, but I dont get that.
I used Fraps for benchmarking.
Frames Time (ms) Min Max Avg 7462 163222 0 62 45.717
Okay here. But then;
Frames Time (ms) Min Max Avg 925 29746 14 56 31.097
Frames Time (ms) Min Max Avg 3369 111489 13 56 30.218
These were recorded during a single gameplay session, after cleaning my fans/heatsinks etc.
I used to play this game very well on the same PC 1-2 years back, but since, I'm getting this terrible FPS problem at times.
What can be the problem? How do I troubleshoot this?
