It doesn't sound like an OpenGL problem. Sounds more like the computer is underpowered. A GF2 MX is probably fine for counter-strike (I'm a CS addict, myself). At least it would be okay with Win98. I have heard that WinXP is not that good for gaming. Is there any chance you could retrograde back to Win98?

And framerates always drop much lower with the smoke nades going. I've heard that they can bring your average comp to its knees. I know you don't really want to hear this, but I throw smoke nades on purpose sometimes, just because it makes an opponent's framerate drop. I have a high end machine that is normally 99 frames per second (fps). A smoke nade only drops it down to 65-80fps. I know that sux, but that's the way it is.

Try going back to Win98. Or reinstalling CS. Other than that, a better graphics card would help a lot. GeForce3's are relatively inexpensive now. But try not to get an MX card. The Ti's are worth the extra cash. Good luck.
