quote: You sir, have certainly made an invalid point. First of all... 30 fps at WHAT resolution and WITH OR WITHOUT AA/AF and at what QUALITY? There are some mid-range cards that can play on the lowest settings and get more than 30fps on demanding games. It really comes down to resolution, graphics quality and if you use anisotropic filtering or antialiasing and such. If you want to play Crysis on a 24" screen at basically full HD resolution on a very high quality then you are going to have to dish out the bucks. Same reason you have to dish out the bucks if you want to watch your movies in 1080p instead of 720p or 480p. Go out and get yourself an 8800GTX or wait for the upcoming 9 series and then get an enthusiast card. You'll get your 30fps.
quote: Go buy a console, you'll get your "30fps" in all games. Your vague and over-encompassing views would dictate that a videocard should be able to run all games at a minimum of 30fps without specifying resolution (other thank 10x7) AA, AS, HDR, and other processing intensive eye candy. Therefore the only thing that could possibly get close to what you're asking for is a console.

quote: You sound like some pissed off senior citizen who cant afford to upgrade and wants to play Crysis on your 6600. You make zero sense.

quote: So now, go bitch and moan about how you have just purchased something that was great 5 years ago (and for some reason won't run today's stuff flat out) and play your mechwarrior game on your old DOS machine and cuddle up real close to it.....because believe me.....it is probably the only thing that loves you.
quote: Tomorrow roadrun777 goes to car forums and demands his 1998 Geo Metro Sport be able to do 0-60 in 3.5 or else there was false advertising and we're all suckers for buying new cars with stagnant technology.
quote: My point is that there is no "average" gamer. Either you get fluid motion in a game or you do not.
quote: It basically means you will get a slide show of the game you thought you were going to play
quote: My solution is to implement "minimum experience ratings" which where suggested many years ago as a way to gauge a card's performance. I still think that is the way to go.
quote: And I do think cars are stagnant, I mean combustion engines? come on... The technology is so old that the paper the patent was written on turned to dust already if that helps your small monkey mind.
