    1/. It seems to me you are trying to do something your card is not capable of supporting.

    2/. you also seem to be short on facts ...quote "I had that Catalyst thing downloaded," unquote and you failed to answer joe's question what are the minimum specs for Counterstrike with regard to gfx cards

    If your card is under the spec of course it wont run the game.

    p.s. your spelling needs work too lmao

    Counter-Strike is based on the Quake II engine; a Radeon 7000 is well over the minimum specs. In fact, You can play Half-Life 2/CS:S on it, though it'll run in DX7 mode and look a lot like Half-Life/CS.

    Anyway, if it ran for thirty minutes with the latest Catalysts and then failed, I'd say something other than video card drivers is your problem. Bad drivers won't cause it to stop working after half an hour. Sounds like just a bug in CS itself, as the game is very prone to crashing, especially with the older versions.

    please explain to me what your trying to say. cause im kinda lost. CS requires a 4MB video card. so im wondring why a 64 MB cant support it but a 4MB can?

    2/. you also seem to be short on facts ...quote "I had that Catalyst thing downloaded," unquote and you failed to answer joe's question what are the minimum specs for Counterstrike with regard to gfx cards
    - well I had the newest version, 5.1 i belive it is.

    - and as for joe.

    ahhh ok. thanks for the input.

    I was acuatly thinking about buying Source, but i wasent sure if the card would work.

    I mabay it could just be a bug in the old version. i may buy it.



    If anyone else has anything to say, please fell free to do so.

    If you don't mine turning the graphics settings way down, you could go and buy HL2/CS:S. Not only is CS:S better anyway (in [i]many[i] more ways than graphically), but buying them entitles you to Valve's entire back-catalog, meaning CS 1.6, 1.5 (if you don't want to use Steam, online CS 1.5 play was still supported and common last time I checked), and CS:CZ. I can't guarantee that will fix the crashing, but if it doesn't occur in CS:S then we know for sure it's just a CS problem and you wouldn't care at that point, anyway (like I said, Source is much better in many ways).
