Default Re: Need a New GPU! Suggestions

well, heres a list of games i play an there avg fps that FRAPS tells me


Crysis = 25fps avg (1080p)

these games i play at max at 1080, no AA because its useless at native res.
(all at 60fps)
fallout 3
prototype
silkroad
spore
Halo 2 PC
Rainbow 6 Vegas 2
Left 4 Dead
Bioshock
Combat Arms
HAWX
ARMA 2
UT3


and these games at 150+FPS
Guild Wars
Halo PC
sins of a solar empire


and most of those numbers are during dual monitoring and watching movies on the other monitor at 1050 res.

sure is, just ya gotta know what ur doing when OC

and just depends on if u get a Monday card or a weds card, or friday car, ya know?

if this is what you were talking about when you said "maxed out" you are really cheating yourself, 20FPS is practically unplayable in most games for me, 30+ FPS is my minimum for gaming and even then it seems slow and not very smooth...

you still haven't told us your monitor's resolution, the card doesn't decide this, your monitor does, if you have a 1440x900 monitor it won't automatically increase the monitor's max resolution if you buy a card that supports 1920x1080+...

Yeah but you have to remember Flight Simulator isn't Battlefield 2, there isn't much you have to do, and it's not running around or anything, it's mostly slow and high frame rate isn't needed.

But if he gets 31 FPS, I'll consider it "Maxed out" Since it is Flight Simulator
