Good point... However, people say they reach higher. Was just wondering if there was a limiter
I know what you mean. I sometimes get caught up in the "higher FPS is better race."
I recently upgraded to a second 5870 and then loaded up Crysis. I was getting 70-80 FPS with everything maxed 8xAA, 16xAF and a maxed out visuals mod. But the game was very choppy even though Fraps said the fps was over 60. I flipped on vsync and Fraps maxed out at 50fps, but the game was so silky smooth. For whatever reason Fraps is reporting 50, but the game plays like it is pinned at 60 and totally smooth, so I am very happy and stopped worrying about fps rate because any thing after 60 is useless as far as visuals go.
