    Same here.. And 60fps is enough, you dont need more, those who want 200fps just need it for their E-Penil low self-confidence.

    60frames is all you need, looks great, no stuttering, and keeps youre computer cool and low power output. Im loving my two GTX670, im playing BF3 as offcoures with vsync, my cards are at 45-50c temps while running this great looking DX11 game with alll settings at ultra @ 60fps. I love my new kepler cards, damn best card I ever had to date.

    Edit: Also one more great thing about it, it will make youre GPU´s, Ram´s, Cpu´s live much longer, if you care a bout that. Most people, like me, only upgrade mabye every 2-3 years. I want my hardware to make it that long, its not equally possible on hardware that you max out alll the time.

    Edit2: And I dont see any mouselag what so ever, those who do feel it I think are very sensitive to small, no to microsmall changes in their mouse usage?? Cause normal people dont often feel. I play BF3 with Vsync, I dont want to bragg, but I often end top3 in my team, so I cant say im playing badly with vsync on. And if there is mouselag, anyone could get used to it, but these people dont want to change anything in their way of gaming. Its kind of petty to me.

    Yeah, maybe if you have a 120hz monitor, but even then unless its 120fps minimum, then the fluctuations are going to make it look even more stuttery than a solid 60.

    Grrr about the 670's, i would love just one of them, this 570 is fine considering it's age,but i've saw it hit the 50's temp wise while watching a movie.

    I had GTX570, great cards, had two in SLI, loved them too. But these keplers, I understand now why NV is so confident, they have a great architecture here.

    Whats the point of limiting your fps if you can just set, Max prerendered frames to 1 ?

    Thats what i do and i dont get any lag in any game when i have vsync on.

    never use V-sync, I hardly ever notice screen tearing and the mouse lag is terrible

    I use the framerate limiter at 58fps.
    Then enable v-sync on the respective game's options if I find it to tear alot.

    Depends on game. If game is adventure type, Quest and not very fast - Vsync ON. FPS and fast paced games OFF.

    With fps type games i usually don't use vsync.But in rpg's like the witcher 2,or mass effect i do use vsync for a smoother experience since you really dont have to react as fast as when you're playing a fps.

    I always use vsync i hate the tearing the image quality also goes down a bit with tearing plus it just feels not naturel with tearing, and with vsync on it also caps your fps [hz] @ 60 or 120 depends on wich monitor u got, so in my opinion i always use games with vsync on, its better for your graphics card life and the IQ is just a bit better with no tearing and it feels just the way how it should be.

    Yes I ue Vysnc, I see no point in having higher temps and power usage to have 100+ fps instead of 60, 60 fps is silky smooth.

    i used to always force vsync off (nvidia and ati) i'm not sensitive to tearing and i never liked vsync lag.

    but now since i purchased my GTX690 i force Adaptive Vsync, hasn't let me down, best of both worlds, works fantastic, love it.

    Vsync not anymore, but you choose

    Im with D4rKy21. Remember that t if you use vsync, you will NEVER get higher framerates than your monitor supports (e.g. lcd 60hz -> 60 FPS) , becasuse it is synced with the framereate of your card and that looks way better!!
    .. when leaving vsync off, you'll get much higher framerates, as much as your vga card will allow in game , based on the ingame settings. But leaving vsync off has other visual disadvantages (tear when hard turn in free look)
    Also you have a cooler running card if you limit framerate. so vsync does that (or use a tool). makes your system quieter as well.
    . So u choose!..:)

    Think you mean the frame rate is synced with the monitor's refresh rate...;)

    I leave it off otherwise I get mouse lag...plus my monitor is 160Hz CRT.
