    Is the monitor refresh rate 60Hz? Is there an option to enable/disable Vsync in the video settings? If so disable it and see if your fps then goes above 60.

    What screen are you playing on? Can you tell the difference between 60 and 80 FPS?

    i use fraps to see my fps. when i just stand there in the game with only the background visuals moving i get about 120 fps but when i start playing it slows down by half down to 60

    60 fps... i think that├Ęs pretty good =P do you really need it to be any better?

    you could try decreasing the quality fo the graphics

    Either turn the graphics/resolution down or get a better video card. 60fps is plenty for the setup you have, you shouldnt expect much more.

    its already at the lowest quality i can make it before it looks really pix-elated. maybe I should get better parts. can someone tell me which part to change and which part is good to get better quality. I have about 500 to spend on, sorry but that's all I have.
