FPS addict

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I realized one thing.
I always used pc components for as long as possible.
Meaning i buy a pc then have it for a long time without upgrading unless really needed.
If i could run everything I was satisfied.
It didn't mean I must have maximum details in all games.
As long as i could run game without it saying something like you need shader version 3.2 to run this game, you have 2.0 it was good.
But something in me changed.
As i do have a good pc - many would say great -many would say otherwise.
And I can run all games nicely, but still i want more, i can't turn on everything to maximum in metro2033 for example and play game without any stuttering.
With stuff like advanced physics, tesselation and like 16x antialiasing disabled the game runs perfectly fine, and you almost can't see the difference in look of the game.
But i still have the wish to max it with full details everything on, and I am not satisfied, and I'm always looking what would be my next upgrade if I had money.
So I realized that I'm only a FPS (frame per second) addict.
And the truth is that I can get away for another 5 years and be able to play games with my graphic card just fine with medium-low details.

So I don't know what I wanted to say/ask with this.
So here, I just thought up another question.
Are you a FPS addict and when you became one?

Meh I don't let it get to me so much. I Find out what I can do and still get 30 FPS, and stay happy with that. Getting under 30 FPS is when I start to twitch.

As long as I can play it on max smoothly, then I'm happy. I don't get anal over a few FPS.

Personally I want my games to run smooth as butter on max but I can tolerate med-high settings. At the moment there isn't much I can' max so I should be set for a good while,

I only upgrade when my hardware gets to the point where I can no longer run the latest games on med-high, or if I spot a nice deal.

Once I built my sig-rig I started obsessing over it, if it won't run at 50+ I won't play it lol. Console games that run @ 30fps drive me nuts!

I'm definitely an FPS addict. I cannot stand playing games with less then 60fps, I prefer at least 80+ when playing games. Now there are some that I don't mind if it goes lower (pretty much any game other then an FPS) because I don't need 60+ fps on say a RTS or something.

But since I started building gaming rigs (specifically for gaming) I've tried to achieve the best quality with the most fps as possible.

That's why I had to retire my tri-sli 9800gtx+'s for this gtx 480 because they just weren't cutting it any more due to its dismal 512mb of VRAM, so I couldn't turn up AA very high or at all in some cases.

Also, if you're an FPS addict it's a MUST to get a 120hz monitor. It's completely night and day between 60hz vs 120hz refresh rates.

I would prefer to play everything at 180~240 fps, because I have the 120 Hz monitor I want to have some FPS to spare incase of dipping

Its definitely an addictive trap, I often find it too distracting to play because stuttering cuts down on the immersion. To me its like trying to read a book with a pneumatic drill going off somewhere, you just can't focus on the "hiccups" and they are incredbly noticeable.

So don't feel bad, you are not alone

I used to be obsessed with FPS. However, after realizing things like its pointless to exceed the refresh rate of your monitor. In most games it does more harm to visual quality than good.
For instance screen tearing. It seriously drives me up a wall. So in 99% of the games I play, Vsync is on. The only exception is Source games. There is a noticable lag with Vsync enabled.

However once I find a display that can take more than a 120Hz input, Im sure Ill be obsessed with FPS once again.

when upgrading from a 560 Ti to a 580, i found that processing power no longer has exactly the effect you would expect, as the games inner workings determine whether it runs well or not. i actually lost FPS on some games, while i gained in others. makes me regret the purchase.

or maybe its just the fact that its the newest generation and just needs time.
