XFX GTS 250 1GB
 
Okay I just got a XFX GTS 250 1gb Core Edition from TigerDirect.com through a coupon I got from the manufacturer. So I install it and download the drivers.. All goes well, I go into Counter-Strike:Source and i do a Video Stress Test and I get 210 FPS on all HIGH. I go in-game aka server and my fps is steady around 100-120. I do another Video Stress Test and my result is 185 FPS, why did my FPS drop.

Also, my last card was a 8800GT 256mb from XFX Alpha Dog Edition and I would get 200-220 FPS in-game on MEDIUM Settings and 210 for Video Stress Test, why does it seem to have a better performance.

I installed the EVGA Precision Tuning and the card runs around 48degrees idle and in-game at 60.

Processor is AMD 3.2ghz Dual Core, and my internet is fine.

In older games like HL2 the limiting factor will be your CPU, not the GPU. If you want to do a reliable comparison for the two cards you'll need to do it with a more modern game. Crysis has a good benchmark, as does Lost Planet and a couple of others.
