    Yes, but its more about what you feel comfortable with as a playable framerate - i get well over 200 (not bragging), but i cap the frames with vsync to 60 for my monitors refresh rate - this is because i prefer all my games t run at 60- thats where i feel its most smooth and comfortable for my eyes. at really high framerates w/o vsync you can get tearing, which is also uncomfortable...

    You can usually enable vsync in game (in the options menu) - if its not an option, you can enable it in your gfx cards control panel under 3d settings.

    Agreed.
  3. Thanks guys I was just wondering I like how my system games, just heard guys here talking about how less than 100fps is crap etc....

    Where did you hear that? 100 even causes problems with some monitors and you have to enable V-Sync to stop tearing.

    Here in this forums. When I was putting my system together a couple of months ago. Thats I was wondering about my 80 Lemme see if I can find again...
  6. Thats rediculous, unless you are 3-D gaming, anything round 60 is plently.

    I am glad to hear that as computer building and all this is new to me. I can feel good that what I have should last me a while.
  8. IMO 20 is choppy except for rts games, 30 is fair but I like more, 40 is good, 50-60 is plenty.
  9. Thanks huys because I was feeling pretty stupid here..

    Unless you spent a lot for your monitor it is very likely that your refresh rate is 60hz. That means your monitor cannot physically display more than 60 frames per second. So frame rates over 60 are actually entirely useless to most people and can sometimes actually cause issues like screen tearing as mentioned above. In general for first person games as long as the frame rate stays above 30 then you'll have a smooth gaming experience.
  12. your eye wont even distinguish past 60 frames/sec, even at 30 frames it will seem like a pretty smooth motion.

    Yeah, what res though? 1366x768? FPS means nothing when no resolution is included.

    Just Crysis on Maxed + 2xAA gets 15-35 at 1920x1080 on my system.

  14. lol - this is turning into a pissing contest
  15. Wow I opened pandoras box with this question lol
  16. meh - people are proud of their rigs; i know i am
  17. I know what you mean this is my first build I I think it turned it out well. Although compared to some rigs mine is not very good! Lol
  18. It seems pretty capable, why not post some benchies and specs?
  19. this thread makes me want to post benchies lol but I must refrain as to not appear to try to one up anyone here... but proud? isn't everyone with a nice rig?
  20. Will post later tonight maybe you guys can help me figure the benches out as im not sure what I was looking at and what it all means..
  21. Some things that are easy to run and that are fairly universal -

    Unigine Heavan 2.1 - benched at defaults, benched at max/ native resolution (gives you scores

    Same for furmark

    same for futuremark vantage demo/ 3dmark06 demos

    those scores are for the most part synthetic

    resident evil variable bench in the demo is a good real world one

    the first level in mw2 is considered a reasonable comparison too

    same with batman aa.
  22. Don't have any of those games what else is "real world" that I can test a site etc....

    MW - i think you already have - the first is pretty similar in graphics to the second

    its good to know what your system is capable of and where it can be improved...
  24. Thanks will do tests and post and hopefully you all can give me areas of opptournity improvement
  25. and for other synthetics you have sandra, atto, hdtune, crystal disk bench... and more lol

    Those are great scores and good job on your overclock
    980 sli480 scs 12gb1866 1680x1050:
    re 16af 8xaa 64bit hdr
    a1:133
    a2:123
    a3:110
    a4:120

    fur
    same settings as urs, but with my resolution:
    7096

    ive only gotten my 980 to 3.6, but i havent really focused on ocing yet - everything else is stock
    hope this and others will help you develop a scope

  31. yep

    you should be proud of that overclock - cooling it with air?

    Corsair H50 with 2 fans on a push pull... temps in hotter weather here in San diego maxes at 55c (on prime95) when its cooler 49 on game load.. The overclock is all due to the Asus board.. played around with the AI tweaker ALOT.. lol it was a learning process
  33. That OC on the HD5870 is less than 5%, should be able to go higher.

    Another project.. Is oc a gpu risky? Can a newbie like me pull it off? If so where should I the instructions?

    Like I mentioned before I'm new to this whole thing where should I look up the refresh rate for my Samsung syncmaster p2250.
  36. You'll be fine, just use MSI Afterburner. Its really simple, you just move the sliders around. Only do a little bit at at time, and test your card for stability. Stop when you think your card is getting too hot.

    Its probably 60hz - you can look it up in catalyst in the monitors/ set resolution area (havent had a radeon in a while don't remember the exact name of the menu)
  38. Not sure but the eye can't even pick up the difference as you go above the 35 fps mark..

    On my P2250 I use the OSD accessed via the menu button on the bezel to see what refresh rate it's running at. [:mousemonkey]

    P.S It's 60hz @ native by the way.

    Yours might not be able to but mine and other peoples can.
  41. some ppl can notice up to 120-150 fps for instance on old crt monitors I could see the flicker over 85 hz
