    Just for grins, close any and all background programs you can't truely need.
    Might not do any good, but then it can't hurt either.

    Get in CS, go to console and type "rate"

    if it isn't 9,999 then make it that

    some more commands that mess with your ping:

    cl_updaterate
    cl_cmdrate

    ^should be between 20-25 for both of those
