So this week I am going to make some overtime money and was looking at spending this extra cash om something that I wanted to get for a long time - track ir3. I looked at natural point's web site and they say that TrackIr3 gives 129 frames per second, my question is how does it work?

I believe TIR3 operates at 80 fps and TIR3 Pro at 120 fps. TIR 2 operates at 100 fps. This number represents the number of times per second the device updates the location of the little dot (or whatever) it's looking at to track your head movement.

In Forgotten Battles I found that for me TIR2 works better than 3 Pro... but like FB/PF, TIR 2 doesn't support the vector expansion, and I play a couple games that do support it so I'll keep the TIR3.

so here is the thing that I cannot get, how do I get more FPS if I move my head and FOV more?

What they're talking about is how often TrackIr updates the position of your head. It has nothing to do with how fast the monitor is updated.

sokil- I may be misunderstanding your question, but are you asking if it increases the FPS your PC can create on the monitor?
If so, it does not.
The FPS rate that is quoted for the TrackIR refers to the accuracy with which the unit tracks the dot via its camera. The higher the FPS the smoother the tracking.
