What I suggest you do is download Tweak your Game Settings Automatically | GeForce Experience | GeForce and Razer Game Booster and give those a try, basically GeForce experience will set your games to recommended settings and Razer game booster will prioritise your processes and give your games maximum resources. Be aware they are still both in beta (last time I checked anyway) so they might be a bit buggy and don't support a whole lot at the moment but try your luck and get back to us.
I second this.

I will try the boosters, VivaLaMikey. I just downloaded GeForce Experience and hope it supports csgo.
Have you tested it yet, how'd you get on?

The reformat of windows and the game booster doesnt seem to give any more fps what so ever. The game doesnt feel any more smooth at all, even though the fps are acceptable. Yes, I do got 120hertz.

hmmm

Are you running the monitor through a dual link dvi? What sort of fps are you getting with vsync on vs off? And lastly do you run with vsync on all the time?

I always run with vsync off. Fps are from 100-160, not that high imo. The dvi cable are just a normal one I guess? Does it matter in what port on the GPU I plug it in?

100-160 fps isn't that high? Do you realize anything over roughly 30fps is the point where the human eye can't perceive individual frames?

Well I hate to point out the Obvious but V-sync is there to make it smooth and retain a legitimate frame rate which will be constant

you are experiencing bad quality based on that seriously 60 +fps is great and you don't need more then that I mean you sound like you have Supervision or something and people with 20/20 can't tell the difference I doubt you really can either

So you mean it doesnt matter if you play with 31fps or 310fps?
The more fps the smoother game, thats how I see it.

Not the case, v-sync gets rid of tearing, 60fps locked with vsync is extremely playable.

Example: i play bf3 at ultra on 120hz monitor locked at 60fps with no input lag constant 60fps and it looks very nice. With vsync off at 100fps i cant even notice the difference apart from screen tearing.

Im not sure what my CS:GO runs at without vsync havent really bothered to monitor, i'll have a look after work to see but even with a high-end system frames dont go extremely high, rarely into the 200's

100-160fps on a 560ti is a very good outcome i would only worry if you drop below 30fps which my system does in games like DayZ with poor optimization.

And the reason i asked about dual-link dvi is if you want to use your whole 120hz of your monitors refresh rate you need to have your monitor running dual-link dvi from your gpu, which will in turn enable you to lock your v-sync fps to 120fps

Not really Drivers make a huge impact too just because you are hitting high frames don't mean it will be smoother it actually is the reverse because to many frames can cause artifacts and all kinds of mumbo jumbo

We have given you the best possible advice ,Pretty much that is the best you will get

you can change drivers or even contact Nvidia they would have driver solutions for you to try as well
