WoW and D2 only running at 60 fps?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Just built this computer 2 days ago and just got wow installed and all those very long patchs downloaded

when i first got on wow my fps was 60 then i put my resolution to 1440 x 900 and all graphics to high and it was 60 fps still wouldn't go above.

i figured with the 4850 it would be way above 60?

Because Vsync is enabled, the framerate will not go higher than the refresh rate.

Won't hurt a thing.

FPS won't go higher than the refresh rate of the monitor.


Example: 75hz = 75 FPS

Most monitors only refresh their screens 60, or 75 times in a second. Always bear in mind that just because your system is capable of generating over 60 frames per second it doesn't mean that your monitor can output that many. In other words you won't actually be seeing over 60 frames in one second. Disableing vSync can cause most LCD's to have ttearing as well, which is wear the image is distorted or has lines running across the screen.

Check the Video Options in WoW (Probably in the advanced tab).

Should be an option to turn "Vertical Sync" on / off.
