i dont need crazy benchmark scores.. as long as the game plays makexed out on 1600x1200 with no skipping or slowdown.
i dont need 300fps...
i mean at a certain point the human eye cant even see the diffrence.
yestarday the 9600xt was crap and the 9800xt rules... now toay the 9800xt is crap.
look if you want benchmark scores and insaine fps thats fine.... im just looking for performance.

I think You're missing the point. PC games generally do not run at constant frame-rates. When you benchmark and the results say 50 FPS, that is an average. The actual frame-rate is probably varying greatly and if it falls below a certain level, you will notice. Getting a better video card is good for bumping the framerate threshold up so that even when the framerate goes down, it doesn't fall below that noticable level. If your framerate in a FPS goes from 70 in one room to 40 in the next, even though 40 is an acceptable framerate for most games, it will seem choppy. If you want to test this, run any first-person shooter that taxes your system and find the console command that sets the maximum frames-per-second. Set it to thirty and you will probably notice that the experience seems much smoother because it is a rock-solid framerate that never changes (as long as your system can render the game at 30fps consistently).
