My friend has the same monitor as me and we both decided to play amnesia he doesn't get screen tear he has a nvidia geforce gtx 550ti and I do get screen tear and I have a gigabyte 460 gtx super overclock my tearing stops with vsync tho could this be because my card is more powerful it's really annoying

  1. You can also increase the level of AA to get rid of screen tear AND enjoy better visuals (there are also games that don't have V-sync option, like Rage).
    If 16xAA doesn't do the job, enable V-sync.
  2. How would I play games with no vsync would it be better for me to buy a 120hz monitor

    If a game doesn't have a V-sync option and also doesn't have AA option you can always downclock your card...
  4. To down clock would I need to do the clock and memory what settings would I need to put it on to make it run like a 550ti or normal 460
  5. tried everything the only choice is vsync annoying might just buy a 120hz monitor
  6. dont really like vsync because it slows games down and i wanna use my pc to its full potential also games like dead island dont have vsync
  7. not with a 120hz monitor it wont :)
