I recently upgraded from windows xp to give windows 7 a chance after all the hype ive been hearing about it.
From the get go i had no issues, however once i installed steam and world of warcraft i started to notice a few very minor performance drops. Id run world of warcraft and nothing seems to have been affected, frames are between 40-75 at any given time and runs great.
My issue is when i try to run counterstrike: Source, I have updated to the new catalyst drivers
9.1, The game itself runs, i connect to servers and my ping is fairly decent 70-80 which seems to have gone up since installing windows 7 but not an issue. My problem is Fps Bog downs. One second ill be running at a solid 50-60 frames, then immediately bog down to 10-20 when to many people or grenades or i take a corner to fast. I had no issues like this in xp and wondering if anyone else is experience these same FPS drops for no reason.
Also running the video stress test i get 75 constant. i have tweaked my graphics card to permormance and tried multiple settings with no effect. i also have verticle sync off.
(and i also noticed this was in the wrong section after i posted :P ) my apologies
