Some People Play Games Sub-10fps
 
I just thought this was amusing:

Bioware thread on an issue with the spacebar not working: http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/to...index/779091/1

Ends up it does not work right if you play with less than 10fps, which many people on there seem to be doing. Playing Mass Effect 2 on ancient laptop cards like a 6150 that weren't even gaming cards when they came out, getting 4fps, then complaining Bioware needs to "fix" the issue.

Hilarious.

Any people wonder why PC Games aren't taking advantage of high end hardware...

You can sometimes find gems like this in the MW2 and Battlefield steam forums.

Loved the comment about no stuttering or lag and fraps shows 7fps. ;)
But yeah, some time ago there were games with framerates on near 1-2SPF.. (on c64. ;))

How can you even play a game at sub 10fps? Half of those guys are playing the game on much lower spec graphics cards than minimum at much higher resolution than they should be.

I LOL at the guy who read the spec and decide things like 9100 card is better than 8800 card. Then proceed to tell the dev their game sucks. As usual PC gaming biggest enemy is the PC gamers. If only everyone was as perfect as me.

BTW I just upgraded my old 260 SLI setup with a bitching 850XT Crossfire setup from ATI. ATI from recent benchmarks seems fast and 850 > 260. Easy math doods.

A master race of cloned craigners is truly PC gaming's only hope.

I also just tossed my 5850 in the trash and ordered a 7950GX2! You know because 7950>5850. :retard:

This really shows that the current naming scheme of gpus doesn't work. Think ATI and NVIDIA should rename all of their older cards to better fit in with the newer series. While they can't change the boxes they can change the name in the drivers and have retailers sell them under that name.

My Geforce FX 5900 Ultra beats the 5870 by "30".

I remember back when Far Cry came out I asked one dude how was his FX 5200 handling it, he said that it ran smooth as silk... :D

There were 5200s out there that could handle that game. Most of them couldn't though.
