Also 30FPS is very good, you guys do realize that most console games run at 30FPS right?
Yeah, most console games are capped at 30FPS and some would likely run at 60FPS but not constantly. A drop from 60FPS to 30FPS is VERY painful and just looks horrible so anyone in their right mind would cap it at a stable framerate. I think anyone would rather it feel smooth.

It definitely depends on what kind of game you're playing, but playing an FPS at 30FPS on a PC, using a mouse is horrible. Fast movements makes the framerate so much more noticeable.

Spending over £1000 on a PC to be able to play Crysis at (realistically) 15-25FPS when there's a battle going on, is just pathetic. It may be around 30-40 when there's jack-**** going on, but still, it's no where near as smooth as _most_ console games.

IMO 30FPS on a console game and 30FPS on a PC game are two completely different things. Consoles are capped at 30 to keep the gameplay smooth, PC's are likely at 30 because you have no choice; it's as good as you're gonna get and it's not going to be a pleasant experience.
