So if you have an LCD monitor thats 60hz, or 60fps. Even if the game is running at 999fps, your still only seeing 60fps, because thats all your monitor can display. If you have an old CRT laying around, or a 120hz tv or monitor, you can mess around with different hz settings and see what the actual difference 120fps is over 60fps, or 60 vs 30 (hint, its very noticeable.) But 200fps wont make a difference until you have a display that can handle 200hz.
The important thing is that if it was running with 200 fps it is very unlikely to see the fps drop to 5 when there are lots of explosions or effects happening. In that situation I would say having a very high average is important even if you cannot see the difference between 60 and 200.

Yeah, I know that. But the problem is you'll have screen tearing.

I see your point. I think if I knew my pc was capable of 200 fps I would be happy with the knowledge that I wouldn't be getting slowdowns at critical times in the game. Having said that I would probably use vsinc as I use track IR and get tearing without.

It's pretty damn impressive...but you didn't say if this was flying solo (I presume you were) how high you were flying, and over which area of the map. (Edit: sorry, I see you did - my mistake)
How does the Black Death track run on your rig?

The achievement is relevant because as noted above, once you're hitting these framerates, you've got so much performance headroom to play with that a smooth playing experience is guaranteed, not matter how much on-screen rendering takes place.

I'd take screen tearing (if v-sync isn't enabled) over slowdown any day.

Not quite true, the eye can tell the difference between 50 and 200hz, although most people can't place what it is that is different, most say that 200hz looks more "real".

An article I read about a year ago was exploring the possibilities of 200hz gaming computers and monitors but came up with the fact that only older games would actually run at 200fps and as such the extra money spend would be superfluous

Having the ability to play at 200 fps would imply your CPU has this overhead as well.

So it's a good thing.

In simracing you really do notice this in your laptimes ( up to a point, then talent or lack thereof kicks in ).

Especially if you use FFB.

I'm assuming capping the framerates only influences the graphics?

Oh and I get almost no screen tearing, certainly not enough that I notice it. I would have to look for it intentionally to see it.
