Anything over 60 is fine for me. Even when I play bf42 in competition I dont care if the framerate is 60 or 100. All the same to me....I pwn either way .

However, after playing farcry at 1152x864 with details maxed I have learned to live with 35 FPS in action scenes. I cant really see the diff bewteen 35 or 70 FPS in farcry, but I can see the diff. bewteen high and veryhigh shadow quality, If ya know what I mean

I play some FPS's right now and like in the 50-60 FPS range but I play mostly MMO's and run around 20-25FPS with 2 accounts running on the same computer so I'm doing good.

I play RTCW mostly, I don't have maximum on the framerate, it varies between 70 and 600 @ 1024 x 768. When I would max it I would use the default of 90, that's just great. But to get constant 90 I would have to lower some visual details and tweak stuff (everything is at maximum right now) but it plays fine.

I'll put up with 25-35 for single player, but for both single and multiplayer I like to see 60+ ideally.

the higher the better, so that you have less chance of 'dipping' into the sub 30's.

I have no idea how anyone can tell a difference between 80FPS and 100FPS. I can't tell the difference between anything over 70FPS. I wish I had that eye for detail.

50FPS works just fine for me in FPS games. 30FPS is bare minimum for me.

Too be honest, i rate stable frames better than higher frames. I would rather have 40fps than 60-80, normally i run my games capped @ 60fps, ut2k4 goes down to 50 however, my TI4600 is starting to show its age.

25 fps is only the point at which pictures blur into motion. There is definately a sensing of faster/slower motion beyond that point.
Im one of those people,I can tell between 80 and 100 fps.I have to have 100fps or it drives me crazy and I keep my refresh rate at 150Mhz 1028/762,everything is as smooth as a babies bottom.

I think you mean 150Hz not MHz, you are out by a factor of a million there... Also, you must have one hell of a monitor and graphics card to run it at 150Hz as I didn't know monitors could do more than 100hz, let alone graphics cards support that sort of refresh speed (not in terms of frame rates obviously)

I'd have to say >60 if I'm playing online, same for single player. I dont want my frames to drop in the middle of a fire fight.

With that rig your frame rate shouldnt drop in any game but FarCry with everything all the way up.

Your right, but with HL2 and Doom 3 around the corner I worry about it. I'll end up getting the 6800Ultra or X800XT (whichever is faster and has good IQ) to take care of that problem though.
