Which setting should we be using. My comp and net are pretty decent. I'm confused!

This all depends on your settings, I personally like benchmark. But you should be fine on any of the settings really. Play around with them a bit, you'll find one that works for you. Ashe's arrow + Frost Volley and Corki's Valkyrie are the highest graphical issues in the game. Go into a practice with a buddy (As those two), get both buffs, then go into a team battle and use both those skills with all the other "team" (If you can call the bots that) there and see how hard the graphics freak out. Tweak and repeat until you are happy.

EDIT: Found the official declaration

There’s a new video option available to players called “Frame Rate Cap.” This allows players who experience unexpected dips in framerate to attempt to smooth out the performance.

By default, the option is set to “Benchmark” which means that the framerate smoothing is disabled, and the game will run normally. The different settings have the following behaviors:
  • Benchmark – This option makes the game run at its unaltered state with smoothing technology turned off.
  • Stable – This attempt to detect and maintain a stable framerate above 25fps. Players may experience a slightly lower maximum framerate, but fluctuations should be less.
  • High Framerate – This option also detects the low and high framerates and attempts to normalize the performance, but at a higher rate than the “Stable” option.
  • 25/30/60/80 – This option allows the player to control the target framerate the smoothing process will attempt to achieve.

Note: These modes are still being tweaked and evaluated as we attempt to improve the framerate of the game. Different settings may produce different results for different CPU and video card/driver configurations.
