Man I feel like such an idiot . . . I totally forgot that my motherboard has multiple graphic card slots [pci-e, agp, pci] plus going through my garage recently I found a box of my old cards . . . threw in my old gforce 6200 and YES! IT WORKS FLAWLESSLY !! ! ! * *sobs!* *

Oh wait small problem . . . my pci-e architecture is 2.0 and the old card is 1.0 damn incompatible . . . looks like I have to restart and replace cards whenever I want to play CS . . . oh well maybe I will get another old card off of ebay.

Sorry for this epic bump, but I too have a 5850.

Any updates for us ATI users? Right now I crash on the loading screen even after using the CS FIX. Not aware of any other fixes. Please post links to the file or give me a file name so I can google it on my own.

I guess the only real fix is to throw in a secondary Nvidia GPU into my rig. :/

Thanks

WOOHOO! ! ! I am back in the game . . . literally!
A friend was dismayed at my current graphics card [ATI Radeon HD 4650], he conveyed to me his thoughts on how a top line graphic artist needs a certain level of performance from his system and that mine was not quite there yet, so he gave me his old and recently refurbished Geforce GTX 285.
It took some creative tetris skills to mount this inside my case, it is larger than my mainboard and extends into the drive bay :shock:
Suffice it to say, I now can play CS [with no errors] at full resolution & detail, the way zipper interactive intended, yes! :mrgreen:

I have had no luck getting it to run properly under Win 7 Pro 64 with an ATI/Sapphire Radeon HD 6870. Tried the XP patch, no joy. I can either get graphics or menu, not both.
