Curious to see if the OCN masses prefer quality over quantity wink.gif


Personally, I can't stand fps dips. I play BF3 with my sigrig at 1080p 60hz, all low settings except for textures on medium and mesh quality on ultra. GTA IV on everything completely low. Crysis 3 MP alpha also on lowest settings with medium textures. If I set my settings any higher I want to shoot myself sniper.gif thinking I'm a little crazy, a lot of people I know ram up high-max settings with similar hardware to mine.

I put 30 fps, since it really doesn't bother me unless the game truly gets choppy at 20 fps. But I spent quite a lot on my computer purely so I could run games maxed out. But I do enjoy seeing high fps like in source games were it's almost always maxed at 300 fps with vsync off.

How low do your FPS dip? I run Metro 2033 at max settings on a 60hz monitor and no lag or problems what so ever. I don't really care about FPS I'll check em here and there but other than that I'm not to OCD about them. Maybe I'm the odd one out here on OCN?? lol.....

Anything below 45 irritates me, although i of course prefer frame rates like 60+

I don't care as log as I can't notice the drop. If it stutters or slows noticeably, then I go looking for the problem.

I have the power for nearly everything at ultra with my monitors @ 5960x1080, but some games are either partially CPU rendered at that resolution, or have insane needs at 8x MSAA

That said, I almost always try to find whatever is playable at near-ultra settings. I can handle a dip to 15fps in a couple of Metro environments or BF3 firefights, because that means 95% of my experience is enjoyed @ 60fps in all the game engine's glory.

Over time, I have noticed that it's that 5-10% when your framerate matters; especially in online gaming, as it can mean the difference between a smooth kill, or a skippy slideshow of murder where you didn't get to enjoy the best, most violent parts.


That is why I am selling my triple monitor setup, and going with a 2560x1400 IPS monitor. Not only do I get the added beauty and super-high definition, but I get one performance gain for going from 3 screens to one, Another gain for cutting 40% of my rendered pixels, and, due to the pixel density, i will have no need for Anti-aliasing. The colors are awesome, too.

I can feel the difference in how smooth the game is up to 120fps (On a 60hz monitor using Minecraft, at least, it feels smoother no doubt to even the slightly laggy bits staying above 60fps still even though most of the frames are being dropped) but I can happily game at 30fps or even under for some games (eg. Crysis) that appear smooth at 20fps+.

I don't mind how low it goes as long as it doesn't lag or get choppy for me.
