Increase Fps In Counter Strike

Increase Fps In Counter Strike

Having trouble in playing Counter Strike, because you lag too much? You can increase your Fps, it will decrease your lag. Follow the simple steps below

Open up your console, with the ` key. If it isn't enabled, go to options, and advanced, and enable it.

Type in net_graph 3.

Join a game. At the bottom of the screen it should have a bunch of running numbers. The one you should check right now is the fps. If it is below 30, you have a problem.

So, how do you fix this problem? Well, the easiest thing to do is to buy a new graphics card, but you probably don't have an extra $60-$200 dollars to spend. So what you do now is, open up C:Program FilesSteamsteamappsyournamecounter-strike sourcecstrikecfg. Open up notepad. Copy and paste in the code below:

echo "loaded"

into the notepad, click save as, pull down the tab and click all files, and save the name as autoexec.cfg. Save this notepad text document into the folder that you just opened. This should help increase your fps by decreasing some quality.

Using this config will only increase fps by a little bit, but if you want a big boost in fps, you should shell out some money to buy a good graphics card, and downloading a good driver that goes with it. A good one is to use a Nvidia GeForce 7500 GT graphics card, and then downloading the driver from the Nvdiva website.. After buying the card, the fps should go up from 30 to 50, or 70 to 101 fps on other maps such as scoutzknivez.


  • Try all possible options. Don't give up if one tweak doesn't work.
  • Find a friend who knows someone who sells graphics cards to give you a good deal.
  • In game, in the options menu, make sure all the tabs are set to *, which means recommended.
  • If this still doesn't work, ask around in game forums.
  • May cause stress if it doesn't work.
