Default How accurate is Fraps fps rating?


I've been doing some various experiments with Fraps, see my in-game performance and I just wanted to know how accurate its readings are. I am playing CoD2 on the rig listed in my sig and the frame rate jumps around b/w 15-40 fps on these settings:

Refresh Rate: 85
4x AA
8x AF
Soften Smoke Edges: Everything
Dynamic Lights: High
Bodies Shown: Insane
All Models: Extra

Basically everything maxed out. Problem is, even when the Fraps counter says I'm @15-18fps the game appears to run smooth as silk. There is no choppiness of slowdown I notice. I know for a fact when animation dips below 24fps, it should be noticable to the human eye.

Maybe my eyes are just that bad?

Maybe it has something to do with the dual core?

My rig
AMD Athlon64 X2 4400+ @ 2.5GHz
BFG 7800GTX OC 460/1300
2GB (2x1GB) RAM DDR400 Corsair XMS
74GB SATA Western Digital 10,000 RPM
Windows XP x64
