I just use nvidia inspectors frame rate limiter to 118 fps, and monitor at 120hz with vsync off, smooth as my babys butt.

I only use v-sync when playing simulations... there's nothing more annoying than looking out at propellers that aren't in "sync" from the cockpit view

For all other games I leave V-sync off since the tearing isn't any issue of mine... also sometimes turning of v-sync makes you able to draw advantage of some game-engine bugs .... *cough... Q3A*

I run with v-sync on all the time when playing games. I'm using a 120hz monitor so my fps is not capped at 60, it can go all the way yo to 120. Which is perfect with GTX 680 SLI

Similarly, some driving games look like arse without vsync.

I have used V-sync for countless years
Simply put, I loathe the tearing which is painfully present on all games I play.
Yes, there is a tiny bit of delay when playing FPS games but I've learned to live with it.

Nowadays I got a GTX680 but if I use Adaptive V-sync the tearing is still there.

With dual ASUS 680GTX cards in SLI Mode a i7 990EE and 24GB of DDR3 1600 and a 30 inch flat panel (Dell) my cards can out perform the Monitor, Vsync is not a Issue for me, in any of the games I play (Skyrim, ME3, Witcher2 EE, SWTOR, and WoW they all play smooth, the colors are great, and the FPS are always high.

Yes.

No.

Bandwidths a bit tight so I sometimes use other ports.

I use v-sync because I cannot stand the image tearing at all, Having v-sync on makes the image completely perfect.

In past 10+ years, i never used v-sync. Always tend to turn it off if possible (some game had it ON by default, and no option to turn off, example Midnight Club 2).

Never had problem with tearing (partly because i use CRT) and i know if picture is not smooth, it is most likely it is hardware/software problem before anything else. Because most people mix tearing with other problems, when in fact tearing is not their problem.

As much as I hate tearing (and yes, I do notice it) I do not like Vsync (input and camera movement is sluggish). I've gotten very used to it and I keep it OFF.

120hz= ****ty TN LCD panel. I wouldn't use a TN panel if you paid me. Tearing also sucks so I'll happily have 60 frames with vsync.

There are plenty of games that still barely get 60 frames minimum ( and some average ) at 1080p maxed even on a gtx680 like crysis 2, crysis, crysis warhead, metro2033, just cause 2, the witcher 2, Hard Reset, AVP3, Batman AC, Saints Row 3.

Not even to do with that, as recently i have saw many fantastic quality 120hz screens.

It's just size and resolution, as shallow as it seems i'm very unwilling to go lower than the 47" screen i'm using, and the second best is a friends screen which is 30" 25x16 screen which is also 60hz, so until 120hz screens are a decent size and resolution they will always be poor purchases for many people.

I was told that vsync will slow your fps, so I used to keep it off. But after 2 times RMA, I keep it on. I'll suggest using fps limiter if you turn vsync off.

Agreed, She's been patched up a few times but it proved ineffective and has left her wide open to viral attacks.
LOD was a bit high afterwards so I clamped it, it didnt look pretty.

I always use vsync. I can't stand tearing so even the new adaptive vsync is not acceptable for me.

I probably have answered this thread already but I still use it all the time. I love the smoothness on my 75Hz 1080p IPS screen. I can't stand tearing anymore at all.

I play PC games online at a very high level and VSYNC impedes computers' ability for the mouse to function properly. Therefore, I don't use it. I also despise mouse lag so even if I didn't game so consistently I doubt I would use it.

Depends, if I play it laid back with my controller then yes.

But I don't use it for the games I play more competitively and prefer to have less input lag and more responsiveness

I always use vsync. I cannot do without it because of the screen tearing like others have mentioned. Adaptive vsync is of no use to me either.
I haven't noticed any input lag while using vsync in games or online in Trackmania multiplayer.
Can't understand how people can put up with screen tearing...?
