Nahh, I know about Vertical Sync mate
The thing is, I'm curious to know whether forcing a higher refresh rate on my monitor would help decrease the screen tearing I get when running Battlefield: Bad Company 2. There's seriously something wrong with that game's VSync setting.
Performance REALLY takes a hit with it enabled (1600 x 900, AA @ 2x, AF @ 16x, Everything on HIGH, HBAO ON). It usually goes as low as ~40 FPS, but it actually feels like ~20, especially when looking directly at large open environment (I've tried enabling triple buffering as well, it doesn't help =/).
Now, with VSync disabled, same settings as before but with AA @ 16x CSAA Q (yup, 16x lol), it plays MUCH MUCH
smoother, but there's massive screen tearing to go along with it.
If my monitor doesn't support a higher refresh rate then I guess I'm screwed lol.
EDIT: If you guys know of any tips that would help me reduce screen tearing in games, please let me know.
