I never thought about this before and I want to make sure my friend isn't imagining things! She has a october 08 MBP (same model as mine) with the 512MB Nvidia 9600M GT and she decided to cap her FPS in World of Warcraft to 40. She rang me all weirded out yelling in my ear about how I should cap my FPS in WoW (I already told her multiple times I don't play it anymore atm) but when I asked her why she says she can't hear her fans as much and when she checked iStat Pro her GPU was only 71c instead of 81/82c. Is this possible? It kind of makes sense but my friend IS crazy! Her FPS (like mine when I played) would go for 35 all the way to 80 to 130s. I guess maybe capping it makes the GPU work less? Assuming its not using all of its power to put your fps to numbers that don't really help. Anything more than 60 in most games is rather pointless unless you have a huge monitor or really REALLY good eyes. I always find anything below 30 fps is when I notice a choppy screen and 40 sounds good because it gives you room drop a little bit without noticing. I also read somewhere that the Mac version of WoW has capped FPS to 60 automatically. I don't know if this was only true with PPC based Macs or not because mine went way over 60 fps quite a lot. What do you guys think? Is it possible? Or is she imagining things?
