I've been trying to find a program that I can use to calculate fps or in some of my games. People have told me that I can do it with 3D mark which I have but I can't figure out how to get it to work. Any help?

3D mark includes it's own tests that it runs in the program. At least the trial/free version does.

There is a program called "Fraps" which can mesure FPS in the games you play.


Not only do I not know the answer, I do not even know what the question is.

Yeah 3Dmark scores your gaming performance through various tests. If you want to test your FPS in games, look online for the command. For example in battlefield 1942, Press ~ , then at the command window type in "console.showfps.1"

Yea what games are you talking about, each game has its own way of displaying he FPS in-game.
