Just a random question lol. So when you adjust your graphics settings (if you ever have to), do you set them to where it never drops below 60FPS or do you not mind losing some frames to maxout a game? I usually go for 60FPS but if its a slight reduction in frames I'll max it out.

Depends on the game. Some singleplayer games, I want the eye-candy even if it means I might be playing at 40 FPS. In fast paced online competitive games, I would not want to sacrifice FPS for things like that.

Just as I answer every other of these sorts of questions: DEPENDS ON THE GAME.

If the game requires high action and a fast framerate to do well (online multiplayer especially) then I go for the framerate (though if it goes way beyond my refresh rate I don't worry).

If it's a low action game and doesn't benefit from the framerate boost, I go for the best graphics I can get...

Most games I play are strategy games that don't really benefit from a high frame rate, so graphics.

I usually go graphics.
I am fine to about 10fps in a strategy game
15-20fps in a single player game.

I usually have a minimum requirement of 30FPS, and I try to get the best visuals with that limit in mind.

For online games, i tweak it to get a average of 50-60fps.

For single player, I set things as high as possible that can run at minimum of 30 with no stutter.
