25 and 35 fps is pretty (s)low. I would imagine you run at a low res like 800x600?
I always thought it was annoying when HL2 would drop from 70 to 60 FPS (although now that I've talked to Leafo I could probably turn Vsync off to get higher... Although I dunno if that would be a good thing). I can't see how you can stand running at 25-35 FPS. x_x

Youre not going to notice changes in your fps if it is already higher than your refresh rate.

You mean my refresh rate?And how can I get it so I can have a higher refresh rate? Can I get a better monitor? Or something for my computer? Or is it impossible? ._. The limit on 1280x1024 is ridiculous. =(

1024x768.  Regardless, I've played on my friend's top of the line computer and I notice very little change other than the amount of FPS he gets over mine.  The human eye can only percieve like 20 FPS anyway so I don't really care if it's high.

Totally false. Thus the reason that a game at 60 FPS will seem MUCH smoother than one at 30 FPS. I mean, the human eye can see over 120 FPS. Just ask your eye doctor. ^.- So yeah... It definitely matters... Unless you have bad eyesite... I'd die playing a game at 20 FPS... That would be so choppy... Theres reasons why games normally run at 30 FPS at the very minimum (though technically 12 FPS or more shows movement... It just sucks).

You can watch movies at 24 fps because it is a constant 24fps and because they use fancy features like motion blur.That said, I run the game at 1280x1024+6xAA (+temporal AA)+16xAF+max settings at average 60-70fps...there is a noticable change in image quality.  If I turn down the res to 1152x864 and drop AA to 2x and AF to 4x, I get min 60-70, 90-100...and it loads in 30secs in any mode

When I bought my new case, the old Comcrap motherboard was hard to fit and used four extra PSU pins (grr).I'm getting some more RAM (1GB methinks) so WoW and newer games will run better (terribly loading lag in Orgrimmar!). Will probably get a better gfx card for Oblivion, too.

Case: A Massive Ugly Tower Case: pic (easy to work with)
That's a huge case :PI built my computer right before AMD released the athlon 64s. I should have waited a few more weeks...OS: XP Pro (i have linux somewhere never bothered with it though)case: half-decent atech case (http://www.atechflash.com)processor: athlon xp 2700+HD: 3x 160GBvideo: FX 5700U (my 5200 died, what a nice replacement...)CD-RW/DVD drive, not working because i have no way to hook it up. None of my drives like being hooked up to a PCI ATA card, so i can either have 3 HDs or 2 HDs and the CD drive connected at one time. Of course, i could move one of the HDs so it's just hanging below the CD drive and attach all 4 at once.mobo: shuttle an35nmemory: 1GB PC3200sound: hercules GFIII 7.1 (you'd think that a 7.1 card would work with 6.1 speakers, however it only allows 5 speakers to work at a time)speakers: creative 6.1 6600 (they died and came back :D )17" samsung LCDlogitech mx700 (i need a new mouse)logitech elite keyboardfloppy, yay.500W "generic" PSU, i've had no problems with it. It was $42, so that was decent.our school has a few (5 that i saw) fast computers.http://gateway.com/products/GConfig/proddetails.asp?system_id=e43004bay&seg=edThey have Adobe CS (all of those programs), DVD burners, and 17" flat CRTs, so that makes them the best computers in the school. I should start posting here more often.
