Windows 7: Questions about FPS...

Questions about FPS...

The game I'm playing:
Combat Arms - Online FPS Action

My Computer's Specs:
AMD Phenom II N950 Quad-Core Processor @ 2.10GHz
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650
4GB RAM
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Questions:
-On average, I get around 60FPS (according to FRAPS) in Combat Arms. Is there any way I can increase my FPS to around 80+?
-Sometimes, the FPS is unstable, and will randomly drop to 20-30. How can I keep the FPS stable?
-I use FRAPS to record my gameplay, but when I record, I get really laggy. I currently use the half-size option because using full-size causes way too much lag for me to even play the game. Are there any tweaks or guides that can help me record in full-size?

Only really tweak I can think about is overclocking you GPU, its dropping in framerates as it can't handle recording your gameplay as well as playing the game.

Lowering the textures and graphics quality will help.

But ultimately your asking a lot from the card.

While there maybe a less resource hungry recording software I'm not sure.

you would not see any difference while playing between 60 to 80 FPS as 60 is almost the smoothest

yeah its not a case of highering the over all fps its about stopping the minimum dropping below 30.

-How do I overclock my GPU?
-Is it safe to overclock my GPU?

In a laptop, no. Not unless you have some way to get rid of the extra heat that will be generated from overclocking.

The specs for that game aren't very demanding,

Combat Arms Game Client Patch -- Online FPS Action

Start with making sure you have the latest video driver installed. No idea if it will work with yours or not,

ATI Catalyst

if not get whatever your laptop manufacturer has. Also if you have it installed, make sure that vsync is turned off or set to "application preference" in the Catalyst Control Center; or disabled if the option is present in the games settings.

Looking around a bit over here,

Combat Arms - Online FPS Action

looks like that game has all kinds of problems; crashing, lag, etc.

Also be aware that fps can also be affected by the PC itself, game patches, game settings, resolution, CPU, GPU, drivers, system processes running, etc etc etc.... You get the point.

With that said, this....

I have a "big fan" that is constantly fanning the left side of the laptop, where the heat is coming out...
What will disabling VSync do?

You might want to look here for tweaks/suggestions on the game - Combat Arms | Games Only Forum

As for V-Sync, you can try turning it off, and may even gain some frames, however you could also get some texture tearing of other graphical issues.

And just FYI, some (not sure yours is one) games may cause mouse sensitivity issues if V-Synce is turned off. So if you turn it off and gain frames, but notice issues with your mouse, well....
