so...I should not be able to see the difference between 50fps, and 90fps which I can easily do while playing css? (or at least I think I can, maby its all in my head)
Damn....maby I really am hacking!
Like I said, some people are more sensitive than others. But you are confused here. The difference you might be seeing is the smoothness. Games that do not use motion blur appear to be less smooth at slower frame rates because all the frames produced are static. Pause a movie, and you will see any movement is shown with a blur. That allows things to appear more fluid at lower frame rates. However, the difference between 50 and 90 should not be noticeable at all. The US has power that operates at 60 hertz, and therefor the screens refresh 60 times per second. Even if your card is supplying 100 frames per second, the screen's images simple will not update more than 60 times a second. In Europe, it is 50 hertz, and therefor a refresh of 50 a second. Some screens and software allow you to modify the hertz of your screen, but no real results come from that, as the brain simply will not process it.
And that is why a movie at 27 frames per second looks fluid, but a video game (without motion blur) at 27 a second looks a bit choppy.
