Hi there

Right now I have 4 games from steam (valve) that I play online (hl2 deatmatch, counter-strike source, garry's mod and cs 1.6).

The thing is that, when I search for servers in any of the games; my computer almost dies.
Everything just freezes and if I try to for example open steam in-game it takes about 5-10 sec
The game freezes as well.

In game I never get under 60fps, everything maxed out @ 1680x1050 so I don't believe that it's something with my computers hardware.

My broadband is 8mb, I don't know of any viruses and I use windows defender as protection.

Anyone? :O

Much appreciated

just quick then:

Intel quad Q6600 2.4ghz
BFG 8800GTX OC2
4gb ram (I can use 2.75 of them in xp, which I use for dx9 games)


So I'd not say it's hardware related :p

Just ran gmod for the first time, and jeeez...

The first thing that happened was that everything just frezed. If I placed the pointer at one of the menu text's it highlighted after about 5secs and a sound started to loop.

I managed to start the game - not even 1fps

I expected more from this computer......

Solved it =)

I didn't know that nvidia had a firewall embedded in their "drivers", but that was the case.

Seems like that one and windows defender had a small fight, and nvidia "loosed" and crashed.

I found it using 450mb RAM.

Well, thanks for asking what speccs I have... :p
