Radeon HD 5830 framerate choppiness

I am currently having an issue reach 60 fraps on games like BFBC2 and COD:Black ops. I am using an asus monitor and fraps says I am getting a solid 60 FPS on both games, yet it appears very choppy. Looks more like 45-50 fps. I have tried everything from changing settings in CCC, to overclocking but nothings seems to make a significant difference. It isn't as if the card is struggling, it stays nice and cool when running these games. I have tried running it through HDMI and DVI with the same result. I was wondering if there is a known issue with the HD 5830 in outputting 60 fps, or if I have a legitimate hardware issue. Puzzles as to why fraps says I have a fixed sixty yet it seems like 45. Running windows 7 64 bit.

thanks for your help

  1. Also, all of the drivers are updated and running the newest (CCC 10.10)
  2. Try another tool like MSI after burner and check your FPS.If it was 60,then Fraps was showing it right.
  3. I have it OC'd and stable but it makes no difference if I OC it or not. It says 60 fps, but does not look like it. Could it be my monitor?

  4. No i don't think its because of your monitor.
    Is V-sync enabled ?
