This should be a no brainer, but let's see how the votes go.

Gameplay over graphics.
Fps can heavily effect gameplay so I vote that.

I pick option #3 - It depends on the game.

It depends. If it's able to run 1080p 60fps and you're asking if you can run it at, say, 120fps at 720p, I'd definitely say 60fps 1080p.

If you were asking 1080p 30fps vs 720p 60fps, it depends on the game. Shooters (mostly fast paced ones like Titanfall or CoD) almost entirely demands 60fps, but action games, arcade racers (like Need for Speed), and some other games can easily do well with 30fps and should probably give better visuals to immerse you more into the game.

Why walk when you can ride? Same low price ;)

Clearly people who can't correctly use the word "validity" are console casuals.

Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.

60 fps, no matter the cost. Very few people have above a 60 hz monitor anyways.

Neither of these options work for me, I prefer a stable fps, not more. Resolution is key in making sure fps stays good, you can't just have crazy high res if it affects performance.

Not saying low res is all that wonderful either, though.

Higher than what?

If my FPS is already 60 on a 60 hz monitor, why do I need more?
#10TheEntitledOnePosted 8/30/2014 9:37:14 AM
I would never run a game outside my monitor's 1080p native resolution unless the game doesn't support it. But performance > eye candy. I have a 144hz monitor so I see the framerate increases above 60.
