  1. I have looked but to no avail i have not found any good articles on it.

    Does anyone know the effects of your refresh rate on your graphics/FPS during gameplay?

    I dont mean choppy-ness or such, but more in the way of performance.

    After all isnt it all about FPS??

    Negligable effects.

    Most games work independantly of refresh rates, so there's little influence. A higher refresh does use more bandwidth, but the bandwidth consumption is so small it makes no measurable difference in performance... Perhaps even less than the "random" system fluctuations that occur when benchmarking.
