Hey guys,
             My cousin plays CS 1.5 alot but he's always such a lazy guy to do anything about his CRAPP FPS stability. I own a G3 Ti200 so I dont really know anything much about setting BEST PERFORMANCE (constant 100fps mostly) while running Counter-Strike with ATI VC. His computer specs are below (not the best).

AMD Duron 750mhz
512SDRAM
Some Mobo I forgot
ATI Radeon 7500 64mb


Im wondering whats the BEST CONFIGUATION for his video card to run smoothly.
I just helped him download the NEWESt catalyst driver which is the one made in 10/03. Catalyst 3.8 etc with Directx9.0.

Any help from configurating his catalyst would be appreciated. Thx.

With that card I would set everthing to maximum performance as opposed to quality (set anit-aliasing and aniso filtering sliders to minimum and turn off tru-form).  Some games may experience texture corruption though if you set the mip map detail to lowest.

Catalyst 3.9 are available now with 3.10 due out next week according to Ati.

Just to add to that, as you say the specs are not the best.  Im not sure of the recommended specs for counter strike, it may be that no amount of tweaking will yield smooth performance without upgrading.

Is he running in opengl mode?
Thats the best to run in i have always found for CS.

Also - those specs are more than enough for CS.  My friends and i play it at LAN parties running smooth on pentium II 400mhz with 32mb TNT2s.
You may need to drop his resolution DOWN if it is up around 1024x768 or more.  I'd suggest 800x600, if that's too slow, 640x480.

Good point, I forgot about resolution :)

Ati cards are normally better at direct3d though as opposed to opengl.

One point to remember is the drop in FPS caused by lag. even the fastest machine can experience FPS problems when playing through a crappy Internet connection.
