My System Specs


Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't tearing occur when the FPS goes above the monitor's refresh rate? All v-sync does is cap the FPS to 60, so most likely he was over 60 fps for the tearing to occur.
You're absolutely correct, however, I do not use VSynch and I am constantly getting around 90 - 100 FPS playing FC2 with very little screen tearing at all....thier is a little more to this then what meets the eye from what I've seen.
I have seen terrible screen tearing on my older rigs, but my 2 newer ones very little at all, all on 60Hz 5ms
I find enabling Vsynch gives a "sluggish" feel.....

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530
