    Those FPS figures for your system don't look bad... Sure a better PSU may be a good idea from stability and reliability perspective, but I doubt you will see any noticeable improvement in speed performance, unless the current PSU is running out of steam resulting is disck slowdown or CPU/GPU throttling, and your FPS numbers don't look like that is the case.
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    What are your CS:S settings?
    My CSS settings where all low 1024 X 768

    Guys, lots of people are saying I should be getting better performance...

    I've tried everything, I bought my GFx card from scan, do you think it could be broke?

    Let me have a recap...

    For all you WoW experts...

    When I'm in high built up areas, like forrests and stuff, is 30 - 60 FPS about right for my card?

    When I'm in towns.... About 30 - 70 FPS...

    Fighting - Varies completly...

    I think I'm expecting a bit too much, a 6600GT is quite an old card... But I'm having a brand new rig at xmas any way....

    tbh, 30-70 fps should be fine?... atleast they seemed to work pretty well for me on my old machine. Ofcourse dont forget here that your average home TV displays between 25-30fps. One thing I would recommend is increasing your refresh rate to 75hz or higher depending on the monitor you have.
