so my HIS 5770 arrived today but i have a few questions.
1st after a few hours of gaming i had a BSOD crash. but iv only installed drivers from the disk and havent got new ones from the Ati website. will the newest drivers most likely stop any crashes?
2nd ok all the frame rates are about normal. but why is it that the games seem to have a fps limit of 60? does it have something to do with screen refresh rate? is there anyway i can get games to go higher then 60fps if its not in the game settings?
If you are running a tft monitor 60fps is likely the limit of how many frames a second your screen can actually display (60hz). Sending more frames per second to your screen can cause horizontal tearing of the screen image, this is where vsync comes in. Enabling vsync caps the framerate to the 60fps that your screen can actually display, so eliminating any tearing. Disabling vsync allows your graphics card to output the max number of frames that it can actually produce, but since a tft cannot display the extra frames, and it also has the tearing effect it is totally pointless!
