    ofc I tested it. I am not talking theory here, but practice.

    Are you really saying that in Skyrim Vsync ON + 60fps Limit is better/more responsive then then Vsync OFF + 60fps limit?

    I doubt there is any difference in Skyrim between Vsync ON + 60fps limit, and just Vsync ON :)

    im not playing with vsync on. source games are a b1tch with vsync. ive limited them to 100fps with inspector, works great imo. (tried from 50fps to 120 and 100 was the best option for me).
    i think most games where i do use vsync im playing with a controller lol :D

    Actualy there is HUGE difference. And NO lag with Vsync ON + 60fps limit.

    you know what? you are right. there is a huge difference in Skyrim with 60fps limit in Skyrim (Vsync ON), but Vsync OFF/Adaptive with 60fps limit is still smoother (not that I would use Vsync OFF in Skyrim)

    60fps limit won't alleviate all lag problems with Vsync ON

    Source for example, UE3 etc

    I'm just sticking with 120 FPS limiter in nVIDIA Inspector, it doesn't seem to provide me with neither tearing nor any mouse lag so I'm a happy camper.

    No tearing is most likely due to the fact that with 8x MSAA + 8x TRSSAA I never tend to get past 120 FPS on my 120Hz monitor anyway.

    For Skyrim they should make a Hardware Cursor. World of Wacraft has it aswell and it removes the Mouse Lag.

    I thought all of this was gone time ago with 3DOOverrider, forcing 3-buffer and vsync
    at least on DX10/9 games

    I always use v-sync, though my old gtx 570 had some problems with it on some games. Now with 680 i ALWAYS use v-sync in games (+triple buffering). Starcraft 2 is actully not really playable without v-sync and Triple buffering (enabled in nvidia control panel) on my samsung TV that i use as a monitor.

    "Always had high end CRT's with high HZ so never needed and never seen tearing!"

    Same here. Infact, I can`t remember the last time I played a game using 60 Hz.

    I still notice lag.


    I think your right. I can notice tearing if I look for it but when gaming I barely notice it at all using a 120hz monitor. I used to be a competitive Quake 3 player so im very sensitive to input lag and thus hate v-sync.

    Even if you don't see or feel any lag, there's still a slight delay in the visual representation being shown wish is the mother of all evil for competitive FPS players so at the end of the day for me it'll be OFF, ALWAYS.

    I normally don't since it causes a lot of input lag in first person shooters. I do use it in MMOs as perfect reflexes aren't necessary. I chose no since I played a lot more first person shooters than MMOs and other RPGs. A little tearing is preferable to input lag. It's best if the game has it's own method to cap framerate as there's no input lag that way.

    Also, I can notice the difference between 150 FPS and 300 FPS in something like Counter Strike:Source.

    Nope, don't use it.

    Tearing don't bother me as much as input lag does so I pick the lesser evil :)

    Adaptive Vsync is a blessing in disguise. No more annoying tearing and random slowdowns when forcing full Vsync :p

    No VSYNC, because I don't like input lag, and because I don't see any tearing on a 120Hz monitor. I cap FPS at 120 to keep from rendering excess frames that only make the gpu hotter.
