Well if ur only playing cod then 40-50FPS is great. But if playing COD2, BF2 etc you will need something a bit more powerful. What are your specs now?

Try getting a 7600GS if your budget is limited. they are going very cheap now and they peform very well. You could OC it to GT level then you would have a great gaming card that could play nearly anything on high. It all depends on your CPU aswell so better post your specs

you people on here realy dont seem to know jack about fps do you, on call of duty you can have 1000fps, i know the human eye can see like 40 fps or w/e but the rate at which your gun fires is faster due to the amount of fps say i have 30fps i will lag etc so there for you can shoot your gun fast it causes jerks etc.but when i have fps lock to 333 with a good card you will be able to play alot better cause you wont lag do you understand. 50 fps!! is ****

Wow, if you're so high and mighty, why do you ask for our help? In my opinion you should put down the video games and learn a thing or two about etiquette... or punctuation for that matter.

i cant understand why youd want 33 fps all the time,, whats the point, also you really dont need a 580 watt psu for an x800

Go ahead and buy a nice power supply now, as well as the 7600gs.

The power supply you can then reuse in your next build, and you can OC the 7600gs and it will be able to handle COD much better than what you currently have.

About fps: Any amount of FPS over your refresh rate on your monitor is wasted frames. Most LCDs have a refresh rate of 60hz, while nice CRTs can have up to about 80hz. Your monitor can only show so many fps, so if your graphics card is spitting out more than that your monitor isn't showing them. I like to keep my FPS somewhere in the 50-60-70 range, anything above that turn the quality up, anything below that turn the quality down.
