Just no room to mention it in this column.  IMAX will be discussed in a future article about 3D.  Thanks for noticing.

i have nothing against overclocking but i've never really considered it before because i didn't really think it was worth it, but after reading this article i think i might try. I only have a 5770 and I get pretty decent frame rates out of most games on my 1080p monitor which I am content with, but if overclocking it some will get me above or at least close to the aforementioned 60fps magical barrier, then it might just be worth doing.

I think it was a great article. I've heard sixty is where it starts to become inperceptible. At the last lanparty I went to we were playing some counter strike source, which is by now kinda old. Everyone was amazed at how good it looked at a 1920 x 1200 res. @ > 100fps, and commented on how realistic it looked. The source engine now is starting to show some age, but when you can those high frame rates, I think that can make all the difference. I don't know what frame rate theaters now show movies in, but if it's not digital, you can definately see the dust specs, which takes away from the experience quite a bit.

If you were playing on an LCD it was probably a 60 hz monitor so it won't show over 60 fps either way.

 Analog film is done at 24 FPS, digital before the HD boom was/is 30FPS. Not sure is HD is just higher resolution or higher rez and faster frames.

"Above 60fps, the image stopped looking like a screen and started looking like a window."

I think 80fps would be ideal as 60fps still looks like a screen.

hence the word "above"

This was an awfully long article with no payoff at the end.

Poorly researched too...you made no mention of IMAX which runs at a high frame rate.

 But anything over 60FPS is imaterial right?
