Does Fps Affect DPs?
FPS is just a measurement of how fast/good your image will be projected on your screen.
Well... If your FPS is like 10, it probably would affect your DPS because you won't see what you're doing ;)
E.g. I was in a battleground and my FPS dropped to 6. Well, I was pressing all kind of buttons (the attack one :p) but when my FPS stabilized I was dead...
Useful thing to know: the human brain sees/processes only 60 FPS ;)
Generally, yes. Can be marginal, and can be a great impact.
If the game as a whole slows down - happened to me once because of a background application - then it may also increase your latency (mine was going up from 50 to 1000ms). Not because it ruined internet connection :) but because somehow it took so much for the game to process things.

Well, no, that's your screen :P
Actualy, quoting from wikipedia:
The human eye and its brain interface, the human visual system, can process 10 to 12 separate images per second, perceiving them individually
considering that that's a single eye and we recive synced datas from both, I'd say that humans can't see the frame rate drop 'till 20-24 fps
As a healer you obviously lose time too if your FPS sucks. When I was doing Anub'arak in Trial of the Crusade on a !@#$ty computer, I had trouble reacting to the whatever icy debuffs they were, simply because my 2-3fps made my spells actually start casting like 0,5sec-1sec after pressing the button, meaning my heals landed after it had already ticked. After zooming all the way in, only seeing the ground, I had no problems healing people in time.
5fps is 5 frames a second which means it'll take 1/5th of a second to activate a skill
if you were running at a good 40fps it would be 1/40th of a second a much smaller time thus faster.
The difference is small in real time but it does add up
