Please Help Me with Screen Tearing Issue

Hello all,
I am struggling with screen tearing issues with a few games including Diablo 3 and Titanfall.
Using Fraps I'm able to see my FPS is in excess of 120 FPS all the time.
Apparently the issue may be due to my monitor's refresh rate of only 60hz, but I cannot find any hard evidence to support this.
I'm curious if anyone out there has insight on this topic that may help me.
Thank you,

  1. Turn on Vsync since the monitor can not keep up with your FPS, it will lock it to the refresh rate.

    I wish it was that simple. I've tried VSync in game and through the Nvidia control panel.
  3. And still getting more than 60FPS on 60HZ monitor?

    140ish FPS with Vsync off; screen tearing.
    60 FPS with Vsync on; screen tearing
    in Diablo III, doesn't matter what settings.
    Playing at 1200p but I get screen tearing on 1080p as well.

    See if this will help http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/graphics-card-myths,3694-3.html other wise I suggest new monitor that will actually use all that GPU power.

    The link was very informative, thank you.
    I need a 144hz monitor because my GPU is producing too many frames for my 60hz monitor to handle.
    Solution: Buy a 144hz TN panel
    When I end up dual monitoring I imagine I'm still going to have screen tearing issues on the one monitor, or will dual display require enough performance to drop the FPS?
    Thanks,
