Default How to tell FPS

IS this an "in-game" function? OR a separate program?

Depends on what game.

Xfire will also tell you the FPS.

Depending on your video card, Riva Tuner might have a plug-in that will log FPS. Like CPU temp it requires that you run a server (click on the icon in the monitor) to get it to work.
