For the last several months i have been playing a first person shooter game called Tribes Ascend. The game runs fine but the card has a lot of overhead and it stresses a lot giving me higher fps than i need (60 fps is all i need since my monitor refresh rate is 60Hz) causing the card to overheat and thus producing noise from the card cooler.
Vsynch is not a solution (even though it caps the frame rates at 60) because of the lag it creates, i don't mind tearing i just need to cap the frames so that the card stays nice a quiet. To my surprise the game has no console command for frames per secound limiter/cap so i was forced to use 3rd party programs like MSI Afterburner.
So my question is, Could the Geforce drivers include in future revisions a frames per secound limiter option where the user can select a certain fps cap for a particular game?
Thank you for your time!

Thank you for contacting NVIDIA Customer Care, Currently we do not have this feature available in our drivers but hope to have something approved and released soon with a driver update in the future.
