post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I have an 8800 gts and my system is pretty good but yet in every game i get 60 fps or lower but people tell me i should be getting 100+; is there any way to fix this or am I just screwed?

It depends on your monitor's refresh rate too, I think. If your FPS goes over the monitor's refresh rate, those extra frames will be discarded.

not exactly true.

The frames are still there, but the monitor can't handle the speed at which they're being put out, so you might see "tearing" where 2 different frames are displayed at once.

I heard those are suppose to be out right after the 10Ghz P4's.

As long as you are getting 60FPS, you are fine. The human eye cannot see any faster than that!

Yeah, but if his monitor is at 60Hz, then max that can be represented on the monitor is 60FPS, or Frames per HZ, in another way.

Anyway, to me, 60FPS looks like 100FPS. Once you start getting into the lower 50s and 40s I can tell, but 60FPS looks great on almost any game. If it really bothers you, crank your monitor's refresh rate up to as high as it'll go.
