Why does my FPS suck? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
First you never run at low just to get 144hz, defeats purpose to have a good system.
It is the same if your system can't run 120fps+ constantly to use 144hz monitor.
Better off using 60hz with 1920x1080 with best detail.

If you must use your 144hz, then lock to 72fps (can do this in game and windows). This is have your monitor and will prevent tearing and other issues you see on screen.

So realistically all I need to worry about if having 72+ FPS in games if I'm using 144hz? Is that the best way to narrow this down?

Maybe you can sell your monitor and get one with Gsync, that way you fix all your problems forever as long as you have a Nvidia GPU.

What would this do exactly? In-games there's Vynz option, do I enable this?

with a 144Hz monitor typically you don't need vsync.

In my experience of using 120Hz and 144Hz monitors as long as you avg above 60 fps you will retain fluid motion during games. For some games such as overwatch you may want to stick closer to 90 fps so you will utilize the higher refresh rate.

What Gsync does as Naked snake mentioned is it will lock your refresh rate to whatever your fps is is within a certain range, say 30 fps - 144 fps, so yoru refresh rate will be 30 Hz - 144 Hz varying.

I use freesync myself which works just fine but if you are an ADD CS:GO player (sounds like it with OverWatch being your main title) you don't really care about that refresh rate locking as much as you do wanting 30000000 fps for whatever reason they say they say they need it like that.



From my opinion just hit as high of fps as you can and enjoy your setup. You should have already noticed a difference just going to a 144Hz monitor from a 60Hz and if you didn't notice anything then for you it really doesn't matter as you can't see a difference, everyones eyes are a bit different, some get it some don't.

Personally I can't stand to game on a monitor under 120Hz regardless of my fps.

Have you tried playing borderless windowed mode? I went from fullscreen to borderless windowed and saw a drastic jump in frames.

Missed the point, lock to 72fps. Means wont go higher or lower. You wan to aim for 120FPS plus with highest detail.

Gsync is not same as vsync.

If I was to buy a 1440p monitor, which one would be best?

hahaha, that's a loaded question right there.

There are some good options for 1440P for sure, the market is crazy, depends if you want price or are willing to endure IPS glow even for color accuarcy etc, though IPS's are nice they have a few side issues a well.

I actually run one of the more budget options and it's a TN panel from Acer, the XG270HU which has been fine in my use but everyone around here says it's complete junk and to not even give it a thought so my opinion isn't probably a good one to give.


Asus makes some good ones, last Asus monitor I got was one of their 120Hz 3D ready one's.

For more monitor information I'd give a read through that section of the forum, might find some good pointers and read plenty of reviews.

I have an ASUS 144hz. My highest priority while gaming is 1st: Fluidity then 2nd: Visuals.
I usually start on the lowest settings and raise visual settings until the smoothness of the gameplay is impacted.

For you... it depends on what you want.
  1. Max "fluidity" / Smoothest Experience
  2. Fluid gameplay with decent visuals.
  3. Max Visual

If 1.
Lower ALL settings to minimum and get the MAX FPS you can push out.

If 2.
Try to stay above 90FPS with settings that please your eye. But watch your MINIMUM FPS in games. Jumps bettwen 144fps and 90fps are noticeable. Smooth/constant FPS is generally preferred.

If 3.
Max your settings. Monitor CPU and GPU usage while playing and if you're seeing FPS dips that you don't feel you should be seeing. Then see which side is being TAXED (hitting 90%+ utilization) If its your GPU then Overclock your GPU, If its your CPU then overclock your CPU. Rinse, Repeat. If neither help upgrade hardware.
