post #11 of 24
Why would you want your GPU to output more FPS than your monitor is set to handle?

Question, raising FPS beyond the 60 does exactly what?

Nothing if your monitor can't display above 60FPS. Personally I think it looks worse when your GPU is outputting more FPS than your monitor can display.

IF v-sync is off then yes.

I was told by a friend of mine that you can reach 75ish in fps in War3 if you use the analog signal instead of DVI. I have yet to test this out though.

My screen refresh rate is 60, but I can definitely feel the difference between 60 FPS and 101 FPS in CS, TFC, DoD, and all the Source mods....

Why you would want higher than 60 fps for a silly game like WoW, I don't know though .

That's because the max refresh rate for VGA is 75, but DVI is 60. The human eye doesn't see any difference above 60 anyway.

The average human eye can't, but there are those with super natural powers...

The average human brain cannot interpret anything over 30fps. You want more on average to compensate for explosions , movement act. But anything over 60fps is completely pointless. Also v-sync hurts your fps when it is enabled
