I was wanting to know what kind of results these are getting in game? Do you have to lower the screen resolution? What FPS do you get?

For cs:s, to get playable frame rates (40+) on the w3v, you will have to run it at 800x600 with most things on medium, and turn off hdr. Gotta keep on the full shadows though, cause they still leak through walls sometimes, so you get easy kills.
On my z71v, which has a geforce 6600, which is significantly faster than the x600, I play at 800x600, med models, high textures, and I made an autorun.cfg that turns off some stupid frame rate drainers. I get about 60-100+ fps, so I am guessing on the w3v, you will get 40-90ish with the same settings. imo, you need framrates that are at least that high so that when firefights get heavy, you won't get choppiness. Also, for some reason, 800x600 seems to work the best for hitbox registration (more kills ).
The w3v will play ALL games out today just fine. You just gotta run everything at med-low settings, but it will still look good.
