I never get 60 fps on my 100 dollar graphics card. And for me this is a useful article if it wasn't for the fact that I already do this stuff. I guess your lucky and can get 80 fps on your graphics card.

I like to double my refresh rate instead of v-sync because if you dont hit 60 fps in the game it (v-sync) will half the frame rate to 30 fps (unless you use the special nvidia vsync).
W|hen you double refresh rate there is less tearing too...
but its not necessary. v-sync enabled is for most people.
Definately cap the framerate at something you want with msi afterburner to save the video card from super hot temps.

Wrong! 60 Hz is a measure of frequency, and is based on the refresh rate. You need not a special monitor to see higher than 60 fps... - If this were the case all the monitor brands would be bragging about who had better fps. I'm currently running a 19" CRT that I have had since 04. I have always seen high fps with it, and its refresh rate is 60hz as well.

Wrong!! Frames per second is a frequency, it is how frequently a frame is shown in a given period of time. 60 Hz indeed means 60 fps. Here is proof: http://reviews.cnet....is-refresh-rate

I don't "disagree" with you but even if your monitor can not display over 60FPS it is proven that 100+ frame rates make a difference in mouse response and is a big deal to BF3 players. Personally I will take every piece of eye candy available as long as my FPS is 30+ and at 2560x1440p that is pretty much everything except MSAA.
To the guy below with the $100 card... Stick to console's. Especially if you paid $100 new. Some used ~$100 card's will work but all of the sub $200 (7850) cards on the market are not gaming cards.

I have Nvidia geforce GT 640 2 gb , I payed 90 pound English Stirling, around 135 us dollars. (its probably worth 80 dollars in us) i'm not a serious gamer but i understand it's a bottom-mid range card.. a good starter as some say,, but it has been handling all my games including far cry 3 and battlefield 3 max settings with ease. even metro 2033 with ease if turn off advanced direct x settings but everything else maxed. that's pretty awesome for a little rated card in my opinion

Why in (u know who's name) would you be giving advice when all you use is an old anolog monitor from the early 2000's? And a 19" at best!? hee,hee

Now just a sec. I take offense at that statement. I use an older ATI Radeon HD 5770 card OC and useally finish in the top 3-4 in COD4 daily!
