Vsync could be on, which limits the FPS to your monitor's refresh rate to stop "tearing".
Maybe it's just FRAPs not being able to keep up with the unbelievably high FPS numbers?
And if the game plays fine, does it really matter?

150FPS on COD4 is pretty good, AFAIK. The Untrained eye proberbly wont be able to notice the difference between 75 and 150FPS

Eye's won't tell the difference between 75 and 150, even "trained" eyes.

80fps isn't a problem. Some games just don't reach over certain FPS numbers, and RTCW doesn't perform as well on newer hardware as it would on some older hardware.

I didn't think they could either... But i've heard other people here saying that they COULD... I guess no-matter how I put it, someone would disagree!

Edit: after a bit of looking around, I came accross this:

This is where this article gets even longer, but read on, please. I will explain to you how the Human Eye can perceive much past the mis conception of 30 FPS and well past 60 FPS, even surpassing 200 FPS.

well it matters in RTCW cuz i like to "trick Jump" and i need 333fps i used to get that on my 8800 gtx i surpassed that i was in the 1000fps it matters when ur jumping.

whats ur take on Enemy Territory should i get a decent FPS on that game?
