Question Frames Per Second- ?
Whats ur thoughts on this Stat? While playing WoW, i am now using a few addon's. And i noticed my frame rate when down, northrend tho also... But i unchecked that one thing, cant remember what its called.... But after uncheckin that, i have well over 100fps, topped at 180fps, when just chillin, movin around usually around 100fps.

But when it's checked and there is a Cap- it stays around 29-46, not so often at 60 fps.


I know my Rig can handle it lol... so whats ur thoughts, what do u get?

I don't play WOW, but considering that anything past 24 fps the human eye sees as fluid motion, much beyond 30 or 40 fps is pretty much wasted.

I game on consoles, and for most AAA titles framerate isn't much of an issue. Occasionally I have a game stutter for a frame or two if the screen is really crowded but it's not enough to destroy the experience.

First off, please note what you are using (software/hardware).
Then proceed to tell us your pitch (I.E. Frame rates)
At this point, the thing you can't remember the name of, should be mentioned. Having the name would be a bonus.
Gather some screen-shots too, they are always useful. Try to keep them in context of the post (menu's, check-boxes, FPS meter etc).

And I'm afraid I can't blame your ignorance

That sounds like V-sync, which is a physical cap on the monitor to prevent screen tearing. If you uncheck it and don't see screen tearing but do see a higher framerate then you don't need to turn it on, leave it off for faster speeds.

If you are saying your rig can produce over 60 FPS constantly... that has yet to be proven. (You don't list your specs.) And even if it was the most uber system on the planet there still may be places in any game where framerate dips. Only a few review sites will correctly report game framerates in Maximum, Minimum, and Average.

A misconception. Past 24 is what is required to 'perceive believable motion'. The fact is that the human eye, depending on the eye, can "see" differences upwards to 150 FPS. The 'problem' comes in the fact that it takes a while for the brain to compare the images it is "seeing" to one another and discern a difference. Most people can't perceive a difference much over 60 FPS, some can see a difference up to 90 FPS, and only a few can see a difference beyond that. (A funny side note - some differences can be perceived incorrectly depending on the speed of the image. This is where the "pinwheel effect" comes from. (The effect where the wheels appear to be going backwards.))

However, it's all a fairly moot point as the vast majority of LCD monitors will cap at 60 FPS (the rating is basically your Hz rating.) Basically only HDTVs will go beyond that if you happen to have a 1080p screen certified at 120Hz. So, anything the computer is producing beyond 60 FPS is effectively wasted, in that an LCD screen can't produce more.

That's because the developer knows with 100% certainty what the player is using in terms of hardware. The game is much more heavily optimized to have a steady framerate with console games compared to PC games which can dip and spike much more frequently.

As long as the game works, I can give a rat's ass what the framerate is.

"This game runs at 2000 fps, has bit-pixelated anit-aliasing and mip-map interpolation!"

"Yeah, but is it fun to play?"

"Huh?"

I will sometimes, but usually only when it seems like I'm being gimped.

Like recently I haven't been able to play on my home system, so I had to play from an 'internet gaming center'. Why they feel a 6600 GT is enough to play current games is beyond me. Most of the time it was 'meh' framerate around 20-30, playable for WoW, but in one dungeon it plummeted to 'wtf my skills are taking forever to recycle' and I peeped it and it was down in the single digits.
