Has anyone lately with an 8800 played counter strike source and after 10-15 minutes your frame rate dips to the 30s and never goes back up unless you rejoin or restart the game? This started happening to me just 3 days ago and it doesn't go away not even with various nvidia drivers.

8800 ultra
q6600
4gb ram DDR2
Vista 64 bit

I've tried spyware removal utilities, antiviruses, defragmenting, you name it, when it comes down to it CSS is the only game that does this. It even gets lower frame rates than Crysis all in less than one week!

You've probably checked this but is v-sync on in-game or forced on in the drivers?

Dunno why it would affect the game after playing for a certain time.

I once had a wireless network card that would give me hiccups in CS:S even though the hardware destroyed the framerate.

Have you made any recent changes or additions?

I do have wireless. I can't remember any changes, it just works. Thats a good advice I would of never thought about it, but it makes sense.
