Because your framerate drops drastically when you enter large open areas, 
meet opponents etc. I've got 80 FPS in counter-strike. This falls down to 
around 20 when I'm in combat.
(Dual pII400 w/GeForce2MX400).

The more stuff (i.e polygons), the lower performance. If you get your FPS 
up to 200, you might have 50FPS in a hefty battle, which is half the 
refresh-rate my monitor can handle in 800x600.
