I just installed Diablo 3 and in the settings the max foreground fps is set at 150 and the max background fps is set at 8.
I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to fps and refresh rate. Should i change these to anything for optimal gameplay? 8 seems a little low to me?
I am currently running the game on my 50" plasma tv at 1920x1080 at 60hz.
That's what i thought, so i am thinking should i set both the max foreground and background fps to 60?
Background FPS kicks in when Diablo 3 isn't your focused app. For example, if you were playing along and wanted to check out a web site. You alt-tab to your browser and now Diablo 3 is in the background. A lower fps in that case will minimize how much system resources it uses. It's just sitting in the background so there's really no reason to keep a high fps in that case. I keep mine to around 8 and the foreground fps to 60.
