Hello and welcome Xlr8333,

What you are describing sounds totally normal to me.

I have 16GB installed and am using 12% on tickover.

10% Memory usage is nothing.

Well not too sure, but unless you are using 100% of your ram then that will not be the issue.

Have you updated your graphics drivers recently? Made any changes to the graphics settings in the game?

I suppose I should also ask what monitor you have, unless you have a top end one then most regular monitors have a refresh rate of 60. This means that anything over 60FPS is wasted anyway and may cause screen tearing.

I always turn V-Sync on in all my games as it is pointless my GPU running a game at 200+ FPS when my monitor can't display it.

Do you actually need 130FPS?

I would enable V-sync and forget about it.

Paul.

What resolution is your monitor?

I have just been testing minecraft out on my HD 7970, with V-Sync off I get between 80-90FPS with maxed out settings and with V-Sync on there is NO lag and it runs perfect.

I will ask again, do you really need 130FPS compared to the 90FPS you are getting now? I would be very surprised if you could actually tell any difference in play.

Paul.

I am guessing 1920x1080.

Something more deep rooted must be wrong, if you can barely play it at 90FPS then it is not a FPS issue. Normally if the FPS dropped to below 30FPS then things would start looking worse and below 20FPS it would be juddering but only when you get to 10FPS or below it would be awful.

I am not too sure what to suggest really, sorry.

The max FPS you'll be able to make any use of is around the same framerate as the Hz of your monitor.

So, if you've got a 120hz monitor, then anything over around 120 FPS makes no difference in quality at all.

If you've got a 60hz monitor, which is the most common, then 60fps is the most the monitor will make use of.

That said, most games are designed to run at either 30fps [most common] or 60fps. The only games that actually make any benefit out of anything more than 60 fps are Stereoscopic 3D games run on a 120hz 3D monitor. [60 fps for each eye.] Even then, most only run at around 30fps for each eye.

Put simply, anything over 30fps isn't a problem at all. It's how a majority of games are intended to run in the first place. 60fps is nice, but there's no point to any higher framerate. It doesn't really do anything to improve the way a game looks or plays beyond that point anyway, and you're just wasting energy and creating needless heat pushing framerates beyond that.

If you've got stereoscopic 3D, then you might want to go for 120 in a stereoscopic game, otherwise there's no good reason to have a framerate that high. For the vast majority of games a framerate between 30-60 is fine and more than 60fps has absolutely no benefit.
