As I've bought a new graphic card I've seen (Ctrl+F) my FPS are much higher than 60, as 60 is the maximum my monitor can show, the rest is power waster.
I'd like CCP to introduce to the client a new option where you can limit fps to a certain custom maximum.
What do you think about it?

60 FPS is about the average limit the human eye can detect, too.

I'm curious though, what do you hope to gain in limiting the FPS to 60? You don't lose anything by going above 60. Your hardware consumes the same amount of power if it's rendering 5 FPS or 5,000 FPS.

I can monitor temperature and fan revs of my graphic card. On fixed window mode if I click on eve client it goes to a 150FPS average (monitor still showing 60FPS), on the other hand, if I click OUT of eve client the average fps goes down to 60 and so my temp and revs (of the graphic card) do. This is a prove that not limiting client to the maximum of your monitor can show it's power wasted, (graphic waste, and energy waste as heat).

Graphics options -> present interval -> interval one seems to set vsync for me.

At higher fps values the human eye does not "capture" discreet frames. It can, however, distinguish between different fps values through movement fluidity. For instance, on a high frequency CRT the difference between 60 and 100+ fps is VERY noticeable in fast paced games like shooters. It's a shame almost all LCD panels are 60Hz only...

That is incorrect. By limiting the fps the graphics card can go into idle/power save states much more often, reducing power consumption and thus heat.
