A more detailed description about tearing and ways to prevent it can be found here, though know I just googled it... When it's off, your performance increases, and when it's on, you won't get the tears. I can't actually run anything graphics intensive on my computer, so vsync is usually off. advocate666 October 29, 2006 12:48:24 PM here is a better link for Vsync Can't find your answer ? Ask !
