yeah screw giga boards!

im done with them myself! its always the same crap! mad.gif

I just seem never be able to get them stable ever & they Bsod for joke! if its not cpu/memory or the SB io's its something lol rolleyes.gif

I really hate them! thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

I've been preaching these points for years and more often than not it's like talking to a brick wall. I point out all the time that higher than 60FPS on a 60Hz monitor is useless. Inevitably along comes someone that swears up and down that 100FPS on a 60Hz monitor just "feels" smoother and better (it's called the placebo effect).

It's kind of sad really.

I just don't care about power savings as I'm going to oc whatever it is anyway so all these new cpu's focusing on that just keep making my 5GHz 2500k looking nice and just fine performance wise.

Now I'm not saying some can't benefit from refinements but I concur about not much point if constant upgrade cycle.
I pretty much feel the same way and I only run my 2500k at 4.4ghz even though its capable of 4.8-5Ghz.

very true! even anything above 30 fps minimum isn't that noticeable. well atleast that the average user can detect anyway! same as some or most game settings really!

the difference between high & ultra or medium & high is usually minimal.

I like to max out games tbh, but its really not that necessary compared to console gaming!

some peeps are just OCD with performance! I use to be that way rolleyes.gif

you are wrong if you mean that a 60hz panel cant show 120fps+.without vsync it can


And without vaync at least you can see a difference between 60 and 80 for example

See everyone, here comes one now.

Let me explain something to you. A 60Hz monitor only refreshes the screen 60 times a second. It is a physical impossibility for that monitor to display 120 frames per second. That means half the frames are discarded from the buffer. What do you think causes screen tearing and why it goes a way when you enable v-sync? It's caused by miscues between the buffer and the monitor refresh rate resulting in a portion of the screen being drawn with a different frame from the rest. V-sync forces the GPU to output at the same rate as the monitor.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hertz
Quote:
The hertz (symbol Hz) is the unit of frequency in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as one cycle per second.[1] One of its most common uses is the description of the sine wave, particularly those used in radio and audio applications, such as the frequency of musical tones. The unit is named for Heinrich Rudolf Hertz, who was the first to conclusively prove the existence of electromagnetic waves.

The hertz is equivalent to cycles per second.[2] In defining the second, the International Committee for Weights and Measures declared that "the standard to be employed is the transition between the hyperfine levels F = 4, M = 0 and F = 3, M = 0 of the ground state 2S1/2 of the cesium 133 atom, unperturbed by external fields, and that the frequency of this transition is assigned the value 9 192 631 770 hertz"[3] thereby effectively defining the hertz and the second simultaneously.

In English, "hertz" is also used as the plural form.[4] As an SI unit, Hz can be prefixed; commonly used multiples are kHz (kilohertz, 103 Hz), MHz (megahertz, 106 Hz), GHz (gigahertz, 109 Hz) and THz (terahertz, 1012 Hz). One hertz simply means "one cycle per second" (typically that which is being counted is a complete cycle); 100 Hz means "one hundred cycles per second", and so on. The unit may be applied to any periodic event—for example, a clock might be said to tick at 1 Hz, or a human heart might be said to beat at 1.2 Hz. The rate at which aperiodic or stochastic events (such as radioactive decay) occur is expressed in becquerels, not hertz. Whereas 1 Hz is 1 cycle per second, 1 Bq is 1 aperiodic event per second.


Note the part that reads "1Hz is 1 cycle per second"
