As far as a new guy should be concerned, FPS means jack shit. It should absolutely be the LAST factor considered when buying a gun, and in no small part because of what TC outlined above -most people don't properly understand the relationship between energy, BB weight, and range (say nothing of component quality). A lot of experienced players don't get it, newbies even less so. Thinking you need a high FPS gun to be competitive is just ridiculous.
