Heres how I did it.

Open Steam and go to Play Games. Right click on CS:Source go to Properties. Go to Launch Options and enter

-heapsize 524288 -dxlevel 90

where heapsize value is half your system RAM. Click OK.

Then in My Computer, browse to \Steam\SteamApps\(your log in name)\counter-strike source\cstrike\cfg and make a file called Autoexec.cfg. Open that file in notepad and enter these 2 variables

mat_dxlevel 90
mat_clipz 0

Save the file

Note* I also put the file in here just in case

\Steam\SteamApps\(your log in name)\counter-strike source\hl2\cfg

PS - I have made a custom Autoexec.cfg file and the game runs super!

mat_dxlevel 90
mat_clipz 0
snd_mixahead 0.7
cl_forcepreload 1
sv_forcepreload 1
cl_smooth 0
sv_autosave 0
