Specs:
xp

AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+ 2.20 ghz

512 x 2 ram

integrated geforce 6100 256mb graphics card

ok something is serously wrong i had my computer sent to the shop to get it swept. long story short something happened ended up taking 2 weeks and i got almost a new computer minus the ram and harddrive. ok so my old computer had a weaker graphics card and i could get 60+ fps. but now with this comp i get 24 frames on css stress test and ingame i get crazy spikes of as low as 0 and it bounces between 0 to 40 consitantly. no matter what i change they always stay somewhere between 0 to 40. i cant play scareface at all and that is a low req game...
someone for the love of god help me!!!

Since you already have 1GB, getting more RAM won't help. You need to get a dedicated graphics card. Onboard GPU's are not designed for any level of gaming, so you can expect low framerates.

If you tell us the brand and model of your motherboard, we can recommend some suitable cards for you. You can use Everest (in my signature) to find the specs of your motherboard.

The graphics card is the issue. As indrol said find and pick up a dedicated card and your set to go ! Depending on model of the motherboard yo either have AGP, PCIexpress or neither.
If its an AGP mobo and you still have your 9500Pro you can install that, if not i would suggest looking at an ATI x1600 AGP or a Geforce 7600.
If its a PCIe motherboard, i would suggest looking at the ATI x1650xt or pro and also the Geforce 7600 GT .
If its neither and you have either a PCIex1 or PCI slot. Look at the x1300 for the different slot types.

the x1600 and the 7600 will run Half-Life2 based games great and also will give you a big upgrade over the 6100. if your not looking to spend that much (x1600/7600 cost around 130$) you can look at the ATI x1300 and the geforce 7300GT but let us know your motherboard model and we will help you and guide you to getting the best bang for the buck. (if ur over flowing with money well :p just let us kno the best cards cost the most money ;))

definetly do as mr fraggs said.we need to know what type graphics slot your board has.before we can recomend a video card.as indoril said,and as i said integrated isnt for gaming.turn the resolution down,and the detail settings down you should get a bit better frame rate,until you can get a better graphics solution.

yea downloading everest now um yea ive tried putting everything as low as i could and as crappy as it gets but it only changes like 4 frames from best to worst. yea its the one with the extra PCIex1 slot. the real small one. buying a new one isnt a problem im just relieved its not a permanent screw up.

edit: everest doesnt support my chipset
