 What!!!????!?!? Framerate is EXTREMELY important to gameplay. If you
 are playing a racing game and are going fairly fast, screen updating
 is paramount to knowing when you are at the proper point to execute a
 turn. Don't tell me it is not better to see 15 frames of video going
 into a hairpin than 7.5. Your statement is absolutely false. Try
 playing Doom at 20 frame-per-second against someone with a 30
 frame-per-second machine. You will be at a very severe disadvantage.
 As you turn you are getting 33% less information about your enemy's
 position. He can juke about strafing your ass while you are jerking
 wildly about wondering where he is.  I hope your rave faq contains
 more accurate information than this post did.
