Hello,
Recently I bought XFX HD 6770 for my HP p6230f PC
I was checking some games benchmarking for the HD 6770, there was high FPS for specific games such as street fighter 4 (125 FPS) tested with system has same card but different cpu which is i7. my system which has AMD phenom X4 810 show 60 FPS

Does that mean the cpu affect boosting fps ??

Did the benchmark you check used the exact same settings/resolution that you tested on your system ?
And yes,a faster CPU will definitely help in improving games FPS

hmm,the settings were the same too ?
i7 is indeed faster but the difference isn't like 60 FPS.Is V-sync enabled ?

below is the review for the HD 6770 which showing the system test

Also you can find street fighter 4 benchmarking

I know my card is XFX, but I believe there is no different in performance since is designed according to AMD specs

I am running at 1920 X 1080 resolution

When I play games I put everything in High settings

btw.. I have noticed diffrent resolution does not affect boosting FPS

my HP monitor which run max at 1600x900 with same FPS rate??? It does not make any different when I run at 1920x1080 at my Samsung LED TV

Then probably V-sync is enabled.Because with v-sync your FPS is locked and therefor you get the same FPS on 1080p and 1600x900

V-sync does not allow the the video card to update the display except during v-sync, which happens at the rate of your monitors refresh rate. In most cases that's 60hz. If you turned it off, and you were to get more than your refresh in FPS, you'd likely see screen tearing. It's best to leave it on, but it will limit your FPS to what your monitor can display.

I just tried to turn off the Vsync option, but it kept show me the same FPS with lower quality

I can control the refresh rate in my Smausng TV, what if I increased it more than 60, does that affect on quality

Quality is not effected by v-sync other than tearing and how many FPS are rendered.

ok thanks, I just figured out it matches the refresh rate of the monitor

just leave vsync on or you will get screen tearing. only disable it if your getting poor performance. 60fps is not poor performance, nothing to worry about.

That is what I did, coz turn it off it make a lot of tearing, but so fat there is no explanation why with same HD 6770 has more than 100 FPS on the link I mentioned using the same game street fighter 4
