Possible. Although, I would thing a stock 2900 is enough to max out CS:S

Well I got 92FPS on my FX5500 PCI 128mb. Didnt really see a big improvement when I jumped to this card. I did however jumped from ~90 to ~380 fps. but then again, its not a visible improvement.

How much different is CS from CS:S. I heard about this game the other day but Im not sure if I should fork over the extra $20.

Anything over 60fps or so is not detectable. What you do wwant, however, it raise the lowest parts. ie: If yo are averaging 90fps and have a high of 150 and a low of 30fps, the stronger cards will increase the 30 to 50 or 60. So, you aren't really looking to increase the average or the high, you want ot make sure the lows don't go as low.

It's mostly a graphical update of the original game.

Don't bother with the WD40. I tried some on a chipset fan and it made a bit of a mess. Just make shure that the fan isn't too clogged with dust, or try this.

Counter Strike can be CPU based, but you should max it.
