What kind of FPS are you okay with in games?

So i've been recently thinking about this since i saw some thread on a forum on a website(not this one) where people thought that anything under 60fps 1080p ultra was considered absolutely disgusting(and not ironically).

 

So i'm curious what linustechtips forum's threshold for framerate is?

 

for me it's rather subjective:

Adventure games and story based games : at long as it can keep around 30-40fps

Shooters: 45fps minimum

Competitive games(e-sports mainly): 60fps at least at all times (no frame drops, that could be the difference between no kill and a kill)

 

Anything more is good and adds to the gameplay but isn't necassary for enjoyment.

Damn....

30 fps has worked in bloodborne, consistency is what's important though. Fps drops are the worst

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Agreed. This is what made games like AC Unity painful to play

Damn....

playing most games at ultra on 1080p, vsync/ AA on, avg 40-55fps

definitely fine kept stably fps during gameplay. no visual drawbacks observed

for games like ffxv at fluctuating fps drops, I lock it to 30fps , still very playable with great experience

This is also me... except shooters,.... I'd still want 50-55fps minimums. (Anything under 50fps is severely "felt" by the hands/brain)
Adventure/Story, 33fps+ at least.

Competitive,.. 70-90fps I'm happy with but likely want more near 90fps (headroom for explosions/many onscreen players and such things)

Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz

First person: 70 is ideal though consistent 59 is fine. 

 

Most else 40-60 is tolerable in many circumstances.

75-125 is the sweet spot for games that require precision accuracy and timing.

60-110 is the ideal fps for a game period.

20-60 is for console gamers.

60fps for competitive first person shooters, or any game where I'm using my K&M.

 

When playing on my 4K TV I have gotten used to playing at 30fps locked since making the jump to 4K, great when using a controller. Mostly 3rd person games like Assassin's Creed or Arkham Knight, and some racing games (FH4). Except Destiny 2, I prefer 4K30 over 1080p60. Although if I can run a game at 4K60fps without loosing much image quality I will.

 

As an aside my TV allows 50hz, which is almost indistinguishable from 60hz. So if I'm below 60 but above 50, switching to 50hz is a great option. 50hz locked is smooth, 60hz running at 50fps is not.

Up to 16.7ms frametime is fine for me. 

I prefer 10ms or lower though.

Used to be anything lower than 60 Hz was instantly noticable on my 60Hz monitors. Now a days, with g-sync, anything over 40 FPS on non-shooting games is perfectly playable. The frame pacing difference is crazy.

 

Anyways, frame pacing is way more important than sheer fps in my experience. Some well locked 30s feel much better than jittery 55s. Which most of the time makes console rpgs really painful for me.

 

My personal preference is around 90-100 hz or higher, with anything higher being basically useless, even on shooting games (with my same monitor and setup).
