FPS addict - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Definaly an FPS addict. it drives me nuts to see tearing or even studdering going on the screen. i will run it in full screen and reduce the resolution. however my wallet is the wall there.. i cant always afford the newest and best to take care of stuff like that so i just make due with what i can get my hands on.

Personally I don't care about FPS that much. As long as I get 30FPS minimum with everything maxed/on and 16xAF, 4xAA then I'm all set. Sometimes I would go for 8xAA or even 16xAA if performance is through the roof but it's more phychological than anything, I have yet to see the difference at higher than 4xAA levels.

My opinion is that if you focus too much on small details like that you won't be able to enjoy a game properly. I couldn't play The Witcher 2 with Ubersampling On which was a shame because the game looked slightly better but after 20 minutes of getting into the story I totally forgot about graphical details.

Not really.. previous build consisted of a GTS 450 and old Athlon II X4 620. Even with CPU and GPU overclocked pretty well I was happy with getting 30-40 fps in The Witcher 2 on high settings. Especially considering it was only about a $500 build. As long as I don't dip below 30 FPS I don't usually notice much of an issue. Unlike you though I so much enjoy building new PCs etc so I find myself not using much of the same hardware for more than 2 years. I think that might change with my new build because I could always add in a second GTX 480 and get a nice performance boost out of my current system for years to come. Also I don't see CPU requirements becoming too much for my 2500k to handle OC @ 4.5Ghz for some time.

Odds are though I'll probably rebuild in a year or two when new tech comes out .. Kepler, 7xxx series, Ivy Bridge, etc.. possibilities, possibilities.

I try to stay over 60, but if I can get higher I am happier. This will all change once I get my surround setup of course, so 60 will be my happy point. I am ok with lowering the graphics slightly to hit better frames but the game needs to still look good. I like to have my cake and eat it too. I want the graphics and the fps.

I understand you. It's a big problem i have also :/

I MUST get a constant 120fps on my 120Hz monitor or i'm not satisfied. And let me tell you man, the quest to the 120fps while maxing out new games is hard

I recently bought a second GTX 580 to SLI, and it's not enough for my taste. Now i want to upgrade my CPU to a sandy bridge or Ivy bridge. And of course, i WON'T be able to resist to upgrade again when the GTX 6xx will be out.

Expensive hobby.

You're better off keeping your cpu and getting a 3rd 580. It would yield much better fps increase then a cpu upgrade. Also, S1366 has more PCIE bandwidth available then S1156/S1155.

I would suggest possible upgrading your cpu cooler and overclocking your cpu a bit more along with a 3rd 580 to get the best results.

Well sandy bridge, if he doesn't have it offers a nice gpu performance increase. Ivy bridge is said to be aiming for 30 percent cpu performance increase and 20 percent gpu performance increase, I think they said. If he skips sandy bridge, it should help quite a bit, but I agree, the third 580, as long as he has the cooling, will help more at this point. Extra fans in the case pointing at the video cards or water cooling.

Personally, I'd say go for a third 580 and wait for IB to upgrade your CPU. Your 930 is plenty for the moment and you will see a much bigger increase in performance with another GPU imo.

I lower the graphics on my games to get 120 fps in any game that is faster paced than WoW lol.
