Well i made a water demo using GetTickCount timer because 1 ms of precision is enough for me but when i gave that demo to a friend of mine he told me it's to slow.
I kept all at 30fps
ThankX!

GetTickCount and timeGetTime both return time in ms, but they are not generally that precise -- more like 17ms resolution (but it can vary).

The length of a tick returned by QueryPerformanceCounter can be found by calling QueryPerformanceFrequency.
