    if anyone has any legit tweaks for multiplayer fps games..such as counter-strike 1.6 please let me know. also if there are any programs that tweak internet specs to make games run smoother and better, please let me know of them and what specs I should set. thanks! :)

    i do that to most of my programs, but I have:
    OS: Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit)
    Computer Model: GATEWAY GT5408
    Mouse: Logitech Mx518
    Monitor: Gateway 19" LCD
    Keyboard: Gateway
    Videocard: Really bad Intel, not sure what it is.
    Internet: 100 mb/s

    thats pretty much it.

    the upgrade to a decent pci-e video card would do the most

    another gig of ram would help a lot also

    vista eats a lot of ram . so, 2 gigs is pretty much a must for gaming and actually just to make your computer run decently with vista.
    you should be able to get a decent pci x vid card for under a 100 bucks.
    as far as internet tweaks. other than disabling background programs don't think there's much u can do.
