Is there any way to get rid off monitor tearing-effect? I play Counter-Strike:Source with 1440x900 @ 75hz. When I use fps_max 76, tearing-effect("wave-thing") starts and it's quite annoying. Also I've another problem with my monitor: When I use fps_max 101 my game seems "laggy". With fps_max 0(no limit) my game feels smooth, but when all the action begins my fps drops and then recoil doesn't feel good at all anymore. So how to fix these things? Is there any tweaking programs or something for monitors? Please help me and no flamers thanks. I bet that I'm not the only one fighting against these problems.

I know that vsync does the trick with tearing-effect, but then my mouse just goes laggy even I change the pre-rendered frames to 0. Is there also fix for this mouse/vsync problem?
