    Uh, wow, that`s interesting. First thing is to take a walk and mellow out, my dude. You say you`ve got PC100 memory, so do try PC133. Make sure of your BIOS, VIA 4-in-1, and Video drivers are up to date. Read some FAQ`s. Also start yanking cards out, first the Netgear, then the X-gamer. Replace them one by one, maybe in different slots, as well. Try underclocking your processor (say 500MHz) in the BIOS and see if that makes things a little more stable. As a last resort up the juice (BE VERY CAREFULL, DUDE!) to I/O components (and maybe vcore too) in 0.025 steps (don`t go too far over 1.7V). There are manifold things that could contribute. Different versions of CStrike are known to be unstable, so watch for that.
