Thanks for the third time… Can this card run just about every game on ultra with 60+ fps?

no, the one's you are asking about are fairly old :/
but the answer is mostly high to ultra on most game, and with good FPS if the game is optimized :)

740m?
At 1080p ultra settings it'd probably be around 30 to 40fps out in the wasteland and as low as 15fps near DC. (I used to have a GT 640 highly overclocked and it could barely hold 25-30fps in many areas.

Hate to break it to ya, but there was probably something wrong with the GPU, the drivers or there was just a piece of malware somewhere on your PC that was causing it to perform poorly. I used to run this game on a single-core 1.8 GHz Athlon and a 9500 GT and my fps was at a minimum of 60. I had to keep Vsync on to avoid tearing all the time. Granted, I was playing at 1280x1024, but still- the difference in resolution won't cause such a performance drop.

I had anti aliasing at 8x too and AF at 16x too. It could have been that because with them off it was mostly 60
There is this video for New Vegas and that 740m and it was sh*t tier performance.
