    Hi I just installed WIn 7 Pro 32-bit 2 days ago and I immediately found out that my games run faster. I redownloaded CS1.6 on Steam the other day and I seem to walk/shoot faster than normal.

    This affects online play as I'm assuming that I'm moving faster than the server, hence causing me to lag. I don't really know how to explain this.
    Thing is, this only happens when I turn off Vsync.
    When I turn it on, the problem seems to go away. But I play CS competitively so I need 100 fps, which is why I need vsync off,

    I've also installed Arkham Asylum, and noticed that Batman seemed to walk faster than what I've seen on Youtube, and the in-game speech ALWAYS ends after the character's mouth stops moving. (Only in-game, not cut scenes).

    Note that I turn vsync off in my Nvidia global settings.

    My specs are:
    Intel C2D E6400 @ 2.13ghz no OC
    3gb ram
    xfx 9600gt xxx stock OC @ newest nvidia drivers
    Steelseries siberia USB soundcard

    Help needed :(

    I've tried the "processor affinity" method and didn't work for CS.

    The game's speed improved for Batman, but running that on one core is just terrible
