I'd like to find out what kind of frame rate I am getting with my current PC setup on certain games. What is a good, free software that I can use to monitor this?

You could try FRAPS.

FRAPs is probably the best and easiest. It has other advantages like being able to record video. It's a relatively small install and is well know and used.

I use MSI Afterburner as I also use it to monitor the GPU temp in the on screen display. I also use it to change my fan profile and overclock my card.

If it's only for FPS display, then FRAPS is the best one.

If you want to display the FPS, temps etc, use MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision.

I have both FRAPS and MSI Afterburner now. Gonna try them both out when my new GPU gets here on Monday. My current GPU (GT 210) gets a whopping 15 FPS on Skyrim at 800x450 resolution, lol.

the new GPU tweek is good aswell and you can record video aswell as tweek in game and overclock while playing.

but FRAPS is the most common and easiers to use just remember when recording the video size for a 1 min video is about 1gb with fraps

But don't forget you can change video capture setting to "half size" which will reduce the file size. After that encode it using h.264 and mp3. The file size won't be dramatic if you edit and encode your videos correctly.
