If you're using very accurate timer functions, you can get reasonably good results by measuring the time taken to render each frame, then taking its reciprocal.

The way Quake 3 does it is by measuring the time taken to render each of the last 4 frames, then averaging them together. The reason for doing this is so that the numbers are smoothed out a bit over time.
