60fps or Better graphics?
So which is more preferable, getting 60fps but with only high graphics, or getting 30-45 fps but everything is maxed ultra? I see videos on youtube benchmarking a8 with 6670 and they were playing dirt 3 and they turn the graphics to only high just to get the 60fps, I think it's better just maxing everything and still getting 30-45fps. I also saw some BF2 videos and the person only set the graphics to medium and got 60fps, I bet he could do high and still get 30-45fps. So which one would be best settings for the best gaming experience?

Really? 50fps is unplayable for you? What is a type of "fast paced" game your talking about? So if your were playing a console, it would be unplayable for you? Since consoles are 30fps, for me, anything around or above 30fps is good enough.Anonymous said:for a racing game, i dont notice when its at 30fps.
though if its a fps, 50-60fps is required for me
Yeah me too, I was playing dirt 3 at 26fps and it still seemed very good.

I am just extremely ocd about it. I could always tell when I dropped below 60 fps in bf3 on my i3-2120 HD 6870 system and annoyed the hell out of me, even if it was just 50 fps. I could still play fine but it annoyed me so bad that I upgraded to an i5-3570k @4.5ghz and a radeon HD 7970.
This is all a matter of opinion, so I'll give you mine. I don't play anything below 60 fps, and I use 2x 7970 at 1080p to achieve this. In the few cases where I have to lower details to achieve a minimum of 60 fps, I do so. Before I had the hardware to do this, I played at 60 fps with low details, because it's incredibly hard to compete in FPS without 60 fps. In strategies I wouldn't really care, but SC2 and the like get 100+fps on ultra on my setup, so the point is moot.
