I'm sorry if my question seems stupid to some people, but I am unsure what exactly a 100Hz + monitor will do to improve my perfomance in games
I have a 60hz monitor running at 1920 x 1080 the model is ... (AOC 2290FWT)
My Pc specs are
i5 650 3.2ghz dual core (Factory spec)
4gb Team elite ddr3 1333mhz (Factory spec)
AMD Powercolor HD 5870 (Factory spec)
With V-sync turned off I can hit 100Fps in most games running at max specs but with no AA or AF enabled. However I do not like screen tearing that I get without the v-sync so I always leave it on and run at, or very close to 60fps in my games
Will a 100hz monitor mean I can run games at 100fps without v-sync enabled and i will not see the screen tear?
If this is the right angle would a higher Hz monitor say 200hz mean a smoother picture with no chance of screen tear, Or am I missing something here?
Please help me with this question. Im not saying I wish to run out and upgrade my monitor as im happy with my current set up at the momment. Just need a clear answer so I can finally understand this.
Screen tearing happens when the frame of your video card doesn't match up with the refresh of your monitor. Vertical Sync, by definition, matches these up and eliminates tearing.
I personally think video games look like *** without vsync on and only turned it off back during CS with CRT monitors when performance mattered more than visual quality. 100 fps on a 60 hz monitor isn't going to look any better than 60 fps.
Ok so I eithier turn off v-sync and turn on triple buffering and add AA + AF to try and bring my frames down to 50-60. Or buy a Monitor that can take up to the 120hz posted and maintain my current settings?
