That sounds about right anyway, i get just under 300 with a 4870X2 so your 250ish is fine, heck if ya getting over 60FPS then who realy cares?

EDIT: o ok so 110ish? yea ok i must admit that might be a bit low, have you tried different drivers?

Seems normal, 110-140 is what you "should" be getting, and to be frank that is really good. Who told you that 250FPS was what you're supposed to be getting. Did you pull 250FPS out the thin air?

Whats the practical purpose of having over 60 FPS if your monitor only refreshes 60 times/second?

cod runs a lot better at 125 fps then 60 fps.... dont know exacly why but it does.

you can shoot faster and such.



its not about how many frames you see.

my guess is that at those high framerates your CPU is the bottle neck :)

I agree. Although even if the CPU isn't the bottleneck you still won't get 250fps.

Absolutely, it's just a case of how your graphics card is scaling with your processing power. I had superb fps on COD4 both online and offline when my old q6600 was clocked at 3.7 with an HD 4870X2 and that was at 1920x1080. With BFBC2 it was the same situation, I then clocked it down to 3.0ghz and the gameplay experience was shockingly different. MOAR CPU power needed :)

That said, the fps you are getting is more than adequate.

Well at first i thought too that cpu could be the bottleneck, but i have friends with lower cpu power, less ram and lower gpus who manage to get 250 fps on low gfx and decent resolutions like 1280*720 and 1280*1024. For example on of my friends has the following specs:
c2d 2.4ghz
2gb ddr2 ram 800mhz
gts250 1 gb

and he manages to pull off 250 fps on lowest gfx no AA, and even 333 stable in pam4 mod cod4.

Y wouldn't I get 250fps even if the cpu isn't the bottleneck:eek:
No double posting either :p

You should "EDIT" like below ;)

EDIT: Maybe he get's higher FPS in that particular game the chances are you will get better FPS in other more modern games :)

the only non-beta driver that supports gtx460 is 258.96. However i did try beta 260.63 with no difference whatsoever...

I think you need to overclock the balls off your CPU and GTX460 and you'll have a nice increase for sure.

CPU overclock in bios, and GTX460 overclock using MSI Afterburner.

its weird you get the same FPS even if you lower the res and change everything to low...

thats exactly my main concern. the higher reso and gfx only affect fps when i run the game at shader model 3.0 , with decals on and AA 4x.
My 460 is already overclocked beyond the reference card, however i ll try overclocking the cpu now and see if that works:p

its not a big deal but everyone seems to think the 460 is sex on the beach to be honest its performance at stock in many apps is comparable to a gtx 275-285 ish so in older games and without proper driver support yet dont expect magical fps to come without the magical fairy dust nvidia puts in there drivers :roll: to be nicer about it wait for some new drivers and relax its not like your game is running at 15-25fps and is unplayable.

I agree that around 120 fps is the sweetspot for me. I've said it before and I'll say it again.

I know my eyes can't see the difference, but you sure can feel the difference in engine responsiveness.

This might be a dumb question but did you enter the console command to unlock the max fps first?

\com_maxfps 0 will let the card push all it can.

Seriously... 60-100fps is not enough for you? :rolleyes:
