    My english isn't too good so I can't even describe what I need in short.
    In long - I need some software so I can measure FPS in games. Software should also be capable of showing the min and max FPS afterwards the measure. I know Fraps, but can it do what I need to?
    Also I tried to search this forum, but didn't succeed.

    I just want to know the min/max and average FPS. Like they do in video card benchmarks.

    Ok, I'm downloading Fraps right now.

    FRAPS is the only one that I use, but I don't think it will keep the min/max readings...

    Off-Topic...You English sounds good to me :laugh:

    Xfire does this, as well as a lot of other cool stuff. Broadcast video/Record video and upload with a couple clicks. Take/Upload screenshots, start a voice server, surf the web in a game, join teamspeak/vent/game server of a friend with a click, add an AIM/Windows Live Messenger account, and a ton more that I can't remember atm.

    Pretty much its an invaluable tool if you play games. :) /end sales pitch

    P.S. I like the screenshot feature:

    I would PM W1zzard and ask the same question. He does the GPU reviews here at TPU and he may know of something better.

    Yep, I just tried it out. Cool, now I know that with my system in Team Fortress 2 with highest settings @ 1280x1024 (with 8x AA 16x AF) I can get:
    MIN 40 FPS
    MAX 143 FPS
    AVG 72 FPS ^_^

    Cool stuff.

    edit: Interesting is the fact that I get only +1 AVG FPS when setting on much lower options (no AA no AF etc).

    Ok, you can lock the thread if you want, the right answer was Fraps.

    TF2 is very CPU limited. I saw a massive increase in performance going from 2.3ghz to 2.9ghz on my old athlon x2 machine but little improvement going from a 7800gt to an HD 4670..

    Anyhow, fraps is indeed the answer.
