Uhhh, no? That would cause tearing, not skipping.


Crysis is a good example for my rig, it can dip as low as 25, but it stays pretty stable there and is barely playable. To be safe I would look for anything over 50 FPS. Overclocking can net gains of a few FPS, and this can drastically effect your minimum FPS to make a game playable

how come crysis is always the game people refer to when seeing if a GPU is good or not? I've never played is it really that graphics intensive... I always thought RPGs would be the most intensive.

It's not a specific genre that are more intensive, it's an individual game.
Crysis just happens to be a FPS which is GPU intensive. Like Metro 2033, it's not exactly a FPS, but still pretty intensive.
Who knows, Skyrim may be one of those games that needs a lot of GPU power to run, never know; so then a RPG could be added to that list.

Oh, just remembered The Witcher 2, so there ya go, a RPG on that list.

Crysis was designed to be intensive on the highest settings, as well as games like Metro 2033 and Witcher 2. Its kind of a badge of honor for a developer to have the "benchmark" graphics game.

RTS/RPG's usually tend to be more CPU intensive due to the use of AI/scripting.

That makes sense.

Unfortunately, they test at ridiculous resolutions and AA settings and wind up w/ 30 FPS for every card.

Pretty much this.

In an ideal scenario, 60 minimum, 90 average. That said, if you're playing a slower paced RPG like Skyrim will most likely be, it's far less important. The "twitch factor's" less of a concern. But the best thing you can possibly do's ignore me, ignore the guys above and below, DO NOT RUN FRAPS or any other FPS monitoring graph, and enjoy your game. I've personally found NOT RUNNING FRAPS increases my framerate by 25%.
