Re: UI Screenshots

Looks great at 40 fps on ultra. Mine is setting on high at about 80 fps while doing dailies. Haven't tried to run on ultra yet. I'm afraid my gfx card might have a hernia.

I'm used to low FPS. I think my Linux box was getting something like 20 FPS.

The card in my new PC is an Nvidia geoforce 630 m.

It's towards the bottom when compared to the other cards, but I think it's better than the 96/9800 Gt that is in my Linux box.

80 fps does you no good unless you're running a 120hz monitor.

If your FPS is higher than your refresh rate at any time, your monitor will not actually be able to display all of these frames

Read that.

You'll more than likely get better results (if you've got a 60hz monitor) at 60 fps and vsync enabled.

Or adaptive vsync for later Nvidia cards. My personal preference.

I don't get that quote. It's misleading. A 60hz monitor most definately will display over 60fps (if your GPU has the horsepower to do so). But since only running at 60hz refresh rate, that's where screen tearing will show up. A 120hz monitor is the remedy.

I can push upwards of 90-100fps in some games, but I'll get massive screen tearing as a result.

Screen tearing can result from running higher than 60 fps on a 60Hz only panel.. At 60 or less it is fine. You can enable vsync to alleviate this.

The problem with vync is that you can only sync at 30 or 60 fps so with it on and the fps drops below 60 fps you will get 30.

Adaptive vsync changes that. It is not limited to 30 fps or other multiple. Much better but only newer Nvidia cards have this feature as far as I know.

Personally I do not see a need to run higher than 60 fps especially for a game like WoW. Then there is the fact that there are no 120Hz displays with IPS panels (that I have seen anyway) which is a deal killer for me. I'm strictly an IPS panel guy! 60 fps is perfectly fine.

No it won't.

There's hope for you...if you feel comfortable overclocking your monitor, paying $550 for it, and waiting in line for months to get one.
