How do I raise my FPS?
Don't I use the fps 1 and fps 0 in it?
spec? driver versions? moniter refresh rate?
Not sure what you mean here, but FPS 1 and FPS 0 is just to show the FPS rate in game. You mean to actually increase FPS. Well then that'll all be dependent on your computer settings. Resolution, texture quality, etc...
You raise your FPS by getting a Geforce 6800 Ultra or X800 XT video card . Fair enough ?
Turn all non essentials off. Programs running in background such as msn messenger and norton- get them off. Turn down graphical detail- sacrifice looks for performance. Especially disable Anti-Aliasing ans A.....- filtering. Also sound options should be turned down, turn off in-game music. Goes without saying (nearly) that you should have latest drivers for graphics and sound card. Don`t forget m/board drivers. Latest nforce2 drivers for my motherboard really made a difference! A good defag of hard drive makes difference. Each thing you do makes a little improve, but together it is usually very noticable. As previous post said, better graphics card is easiest (and most expensive) way to increase FPS. Anything less than 128MB card and you can forget it. Dont rate the FX5200 though. You could also consider overclocking card. I downloaded "coolbits" software for nvidea FX5600 card. Only a few hundred KBs in size but unlocks option in graphic card settings to increase memory speed. Knocked it up 15% (not a bad increase in performance!) which was well within what the auto detect overclock option would have pushed it to. Obviously overclocking is frowned on in some quarters but if your system is well cooled and you don`t go mad it should be worth it. The higher you clock card the more heat generated. Factory settings are set on safe side so that all systems can run problem free. But no 2 systems are same and if you have a well built one with good cooling....
I did as you said and looked at my FPS. This is wht ALWAYS happens. I go into a server, and I have an FPS from 30-50-70 depending on how good the server is. Then suddenly, my FPS drops to 3-6 frames per 20 seconds. Then goes back to 30-50-70. These FPS drops do not happen because I am in a big firefight or I am in a dense forest. It happens so often that I can almost tell when it's going to start. Rather than this huge problem, my games run smoothly(the only game that has never done this is Call of Duty).
what are your system specs, imprtant BEFORE assking any questuion!

1st off, your vid card is not too hot, but should be ok. Do you have the sound options turned to low, NOT EAX? What are your grahpic settings on? You running latest Nvid drivers?
