I need a favor from you guys, and I would be so greatful. Those of you who have lost coast, please run the "stress test" and post your results, along with system componants (if they are not in your sig). I'm getting about 52 FPS in it and I think my CPU is holding me back. From my understanding, all source games are CPU limited more than GPU. So what I'm trying to gather here is enough info to help me decide on what CPU to get. I pretty much only play source. Thanks in advance guys!

System Specs:

Fortron Source 400w (Dual 12v@18A)
Asus P4SD-VL Springdale 865PE chipset
Pentium 4 skt478 3.0E 1MB cache
ATi AIW X800XT 256MB
OCZ DDR333 512MB (2x256)
DDR333 1GB (2x512)
Seagate 160GB
Sony DVD-RW

Thanks, but I have no intention of getting another skt478 CPU. I'm looking at AMD or intel (allendale) atm. Price is a concern, I'm checking out what others have and what I can get with a new CPU.
