    sorry for this odd question

    sorry for the stupid question but i dont know if its possible to show the frame rate per second during the game or to see anyway how much fps i got during playing. I need it because the game runs a bit slow. Thanx to anyone that helps

    While in game, press f10 and type: stat fps
    Its not an odd question, in fact its rather common. Its a shame its not mentioned in the manual

      thank you it works(no doubts about it ).but i saw 2 things:
      1)FPS(its always about 6-10 in game,20-22 while im in the menu
      2)ms(costantly above 100 in game, 50-40 while im at the menu
      i think i should see FPS but not sure...i hope not =)

        if you're asking about ps3, i have no idea.

        for PC, hit f10 (default console unless you bound it to something else) and type stat fps

          What are your system specs? 6-10 is pretty low. Make sure you turn of frame sync on the "advanced" options.

                  No reason to apologize, everyone who first started gaming on the PC has asked those questions.

                  A lower ping is better then a higher ping.

                  EG:
                  A ping of 50 is better then a ping of 250

                      As for the Vid card, you will most likely need to upgrade to get better FPS. I use to have the x1650 PRO, averaging around 20 in game. Here's link to how the card compare to each other. I would try to get one that's closest to the highest within your budget. The article suggest getting a card a least 3 tiers up from the one you got otherwise it's not really worth the upgrade. x1650 isn't listed so I would go by the x1650 PRO's status.

                      You want as low a ping as possible. This is the time it takes your PC/PS3 to communicate with the server. The higher the ping the longer it takes for your PC/PS3 to send and receive data from the server.

                            Yes, it is possible but the video cards have to be SLI compatible and have 2 PC slots open next to each other. Unfortunately, I believe this is only available with the latest cards coming out for the ATI brand. Nvidia, I believe the 6 series and up are capable of SLI setup. < I would check on this before buying to be safe.

                              SLI: 2, or 3 Nvidia cards linked together performing like one card.
                              Crossfire: 2 ATI cards linked together, doing the same.
                              BOTH require specific motherboard chipsets to work.
