To me that looks like an extremely good framerate. You should be happy, many people will get nowhere near that on max everything. If you're not, look at all the other aspects of your system. If you want us to comment we need the rest of your specs.

Your eye can't even see 60 FPS... sounds like plenty to me.

No, you're right, suede. You should be able to do better with some tweaking. I haven't played United Offensive yet, but I have COD and a 9800XT and I easily got 50-60fps on high, but I had to tweak(not OC) the video card's settings. Things that are configured ingame, should be set to automatic or application preference. This is where I prefer ATI over nVidia. Now there's no real difference as far as hardware capabilities goes, but ATIs have a LOT of things that are not needed that can be turned off or disabled. nVidia cards have the same capabilities, but they are set up with less configuration settings(presumably to make it easier for gamers to get up and running on a game). You could try a third party app for nVidia cards that is designed to unlock the things that are done automatically. But a 6800 should be able to do better than 60.

Just a thought, have you remembered to unlock your monitor's refresh rate from 60Hz? That's very important.

Yes, i do get over 100 FPS on CoD, but it took me awhile to get here. My Card is a Ge-Cube RX800XT vivo platinum, i have 1GB DDR and a Athlon 64Bit 3700+. It could be your card, or maybe your processor, Pentium is supposed to be less effective than Athlon. I did alot of tweaking, and everything is turned down when i play online. Also, your internet connection may have something to do with it, or it in relation to what you have set as your connection in CoD:MP.

Turn off your vert sync. Vertycial snyc. limits your FPS to 60 but syncs your cards frame rate with your monitor. That is what is limiting your FPS to only 60. Programs like radlinker can help to stop this by having the option of custom setting each of your game AA. Af, and other stuff(including vert. sync.) Hope this helps since i wanted to get the true FPS out of my 9000 on COD. my 9600 in COD hovers in the 70's

Suede, I'm asuming that you are running either 2000 or XP as an OS. The NT type OS's have a refresh rate limit of 60Hz under Direct X apps and 75Hz under OpenGL. Since Call of Duty uses Dirext X, it is being limited(by Windows) to 60Hz, which in turn is limiting your FPS to 60. There is a place in your nVidia drivers where you can uncap your monitors refresh rate(within the limitations of the monitor itself) to run at a higher refresh. This part all depends on your monitor. You have to find the maximum refresh rate that your monitor can use on each of the display resolutions you plan to use in various games. For example, my monitor can go up to 100Hz at 1024*768, but at 800*600 it can go to 120Hz. In the nVidia display settings under the refresh rate Override as it's called, you have to set the maximum that your monitor is capable of for each of the settings you plan to use. Now, your monitor may have driver(inf) updates. Yes monitors can get updates too. Find what you can from the manufacturer, even Windows Update will sometimes have it under the Driver Updates link. Something I completely forgot about is what Pethegreat mentioned. Disabling the Vertical Sync(if possible). This can also solve the problem, though doesn't always work. I can't remember if COD has that feature. Either way, you've got something to play with.
