I'm sorry, but I easily spot the difference between 20 or 30, and 60 FPS.

Then what planet are you from Spock? The human eye can only see about 20-30 fps, period.

ok so frame rates are like the diference bettween one of those old movies with a projestor and a pixar movie the more frame rates the smoother the elements tranform so to speak?

umm, well not exactly...that's not WHY the newer films look smoother, but could be a useful analogy in how games look when comparing 15fps to 30+fps.

in reality, almost all movies are at 24fps. they just look smooth because of the blurring effect which makes the transition between frames smoother.

unfortunately, to recreate a "blurring" effect in a game would require much higher frame rates or else the blurring wouldn't look smooth, lol.

basically the difference is just how smooth the game looks. especially noticeable during fast action.

I'm a 35 FPS guy. Anything running over that isn't too sensitive to me.
