Im not a big believer in more than 60 fps but I definitely think gamers should strive to get as close to 60 fps as possible.
LOL IM spoiled then because if i get less then 70fps in a game maxxed out...
I get aggravated...

I do think fps is capped on some games...

Cause BatMan DA uses 40% of gpus and 30% of cpu... But my fps is stuck at 63.. ANd never moves..

But on Call of duty black ops... I can get 130fps maxxed out with about 60% gpu useage and 40% cpu.

Crysis Warhead maxxed out with gpu overclocks i get 99% Gpu useage and about 70fps.

lol so much epeen over fps.


Anways, look at the screen, shake your head back and fourth as fast as you can while trying to read the screen.

Unless your neck is slow, it's not going to happen, your brain can't process the images fast enough.

^^^ this ^^^

its true some people can actually notice the difference between 30, 60, and 120 fps like me, im VERY picky with FPS and Audio so i see and notice things most people never will.

its ur rig, if it looks fine to you thats all that matters

I go by "Can I play it? Yes? GOOD! No? Turn stuff down, then return to beginning". It works great, and I don't get caught up in e-peen wars over it. Whether 'playable' is 15 or 50FPS depends entirely on what I'm playing. Hell in Gmod I don't even get annoyed by lag until it's down to 9-10FPS.

I consider myself good enough at 35 FPS. It's the point where I start to feel un-choppy moves.

And btw, my eye can catch way more than 60FPS, years of gaming confirm that at 60FPS I can still see frames passing on the screen. If I concentrate on the screen bezels I get terrified at how choppy frames actually are.

I've had troubles with this when I was using my backup card (ati 5450) which only gave me 55fps @ 1680x1050 so I chose to run 800x600 to keep minimum fps above 70 which fixed the problem. Anything above 70 or 75 I can't really tell a difference. It's early and I'm tired but kudos to the dude that said whatever looks fluid to you is what you should run it at, not all eyes are the same, not all 60 fps is the same (60 fps without microstutter is much better than 80 fps with microstutter is what I mean).
Micro-stutter is only an issue with multiGPU configurations. You will never get it with a single GPU. However, there can be display lag if your gpu is sending A LOT more fps than your screen can display and you usually end up with screen tearing. Basically, part of a new frame rendered while part of an old frame is still being displayed. That can be confused with microstutter.

You monitor can only display as many FPS as its refresh rate. So for instance, if your monitor is 60 Hz then it can only display 60 fps. 60 Hz = 60 complete screen refreshes per second.

Once again your monitors refresh rate is a deciding factor about how many FPS can be displayed. However, the input signal from your gpu might be considerably more fps than your monitor can handle. However, when more fps are sent to the monitor it gives the [i]perception[/] of smoother gameplay even though the FPS aren't any higher.

But I'm with you on the rest. I usually notice things that most others do not. I can and do see a difference between the framerates, and sound as well --only when wearing headphones.

Because video technically isn't displayed at 29 fps because of the black frames. In the movie theater it's typically run @ 72 fps.

60 for racing and twitch shooters, for everything else 40 or so is just fine. Feels much smoother then 30, but much easier to get then 60.
