Gamer's Graphics & Display Settings Guide

Posted on Tuesday, Jul 25 2006 @ 09:59 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
I looked around and realised that many of the most basic and commonly used graphical and display-related settings such as FPS, Resolution, Refresh Rate, Triple Buffering and VSync are never really explained in sufficient detail in plain English, particularly with a gaming audience in mind. In fact virtually nowhere can you find even a simple rundown of how exactly a game goes from being a set of files on your hard drive to an animated image on your monitor. So I ambitiously took it upon myself to do just that, and the Gamer's Graphics & Display Settings Guide is the result. Whether you're a newbie or a veteran to PCs, the guide should help you gain a clearer understanding of exactly what is happening on your machine when you play games, and what all those settings really mean.
