Under the thread "Enhancing performance" or whatever its exactly titled there is valid proof that vsync OFF improves system performance.

I did this, and dropped 400 points in 3dmark03. Turned it back "on by default" in RivaTuner and got my 400 points back.

Admittedly, I know nothing about vsync, im just sharing info, its something for you all to look at.

Vsync syncronises your fps to your monitors refresh rate.So if your refresh rate is 70hz then your fps will be 70 if your card can produce that

what about if the the refresh is say 85 but your machine is only outputting say 50 - will that make it really jerky?

But with vsync on I still get the normal 200-500fps at certain parts of 3dmark03, and clearly that isnt my refresh rate also....

no because your only getting 50. vsync would still sync the frames , so if anything it would be smoother with less tearing

That's how many FPS the GPU is rendering internally, not the amount of times it is refreshing to the monitor.
