Smoke lag

Hi. Whenever I play Garry’s Mod it normally runs smooth but whenever I see smoke or bright lights in the game, it lags bad; Especially up close. Is there a a console command I can use to help end the lag? Or should I just town down my graphic settings?

Computer specs

Any in particular? All the ones I’ve set are “recommended for my system.”

Oops, sorry I thought you meant to adjust my computer specs. I’m guessing this is what you’re looking for:

I have a NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430

Let me know if you need anything else.

Set them lower. Really the only ones I find necessary on high are Model and Textures.

Set Filtering and Anti Aliasing on the lowest.
