If your game has a setting called vsync thats what it is, or if it has frame limiter or frame rate limiter, something like that turn it to 30 then play for a while then turn it to 60 and play (if your computer can do 60 fps in that game) There is also a program called fraps that shows an fps overlay in your games

You can use NvidiaInspector.

Install/download, then click on the little tools next to "driver version", there you can limit your fps to 30 and click "apply".

Generally 60fps feels smoother. However, running the physics test on firestrike feels smoother at ~24 fps than a 30 fps game on console because it's a constant frame rate whereas a lot of console games have varying frame rates.

60 FPS will be better than 30 FPS, IF it's stable in both terms of FPS and frame time.

There is actually a genuine difference. As for responsiveness, I can't tell (anymore), I used to play NES, PS and PS2 as my latest console,

but seeing 30FPS on TV, from a couch, will not feel the same on a PC in front of a monitor.

From far away, it will look smoother. I had a friend playing a game at about 70-80FPS on my PC, and from a spot away from him, it looked damn smooth.

Of course, at 60FPS, no matter what, responsiveness will be better.

Are you sure you're even getting 60fps when you're playing games on your PC?

Unlocked fps can break stuff in San Andreas (driving school, diving, etc). I want a locked 30 fps option in the PC version of this game. Also, my computer is slow.

You don`t want 30. Trust me. It can be playable on 30, but you will experience a lot of BS. I play on my Xbox360, Install disc on flash drive and Play disc on HDD. Playing on a 100Hz TV. There is such a big input lag a hardcore PC master race gamer would go insane playing with that. Like you know when you go fast while weaving and dodging traffic you need to have a quick reaction time? With 30 you need the ability to predict the future and react faster than a normal person would, because there is like a 200-300ms input-lag.

 

Of course if you are a casual who plays video games for about an hour once a week then you probably won`t see any problems and will be fine. But once you experience 120FPS on a 144Hz screen you will never be the same. After I got to play around on a 144Hz screen with 120 FPS, I want to get a 144Hz monitor asap. Huge difference if you know where and what to look at.

You're comparing a monitor to a TV, it wasn't the FPS that was causing the input lag, TV's have all sorts of post processing BS which leads to high amounts of input lag whereas monitors don't have all that post processing stuff.

But... They said GTA V will work properly with 60fps. No reason to lock it at 30.

Okay but I think the game should have both modes. I won't be able to hit 60 fps all the time with a stock core 2 quad. In MGS GZ I can enable the 30 fps cap and the game feels ok :D

A while back I also used my PC monitor (ViewSonic VX2252mh) when I played GTA5 while TV was being already used and even though the monitor is 60Hz I still noticed the input-lag.

You have a bad monitor then, that or you're using VSync.

Why not just play it on consoles, it's basically the same thing.
