I don't think I've ever played a game with vsync off and NOT noticed tearing. I admit on some games it's less noticeable but I've gone through 6 widescreen monitors and notice it on all of them. I wonder if it's just that some people cant notice it or if it's certain types of monitors. I'd imagine even a 120hz monitor would see screen tear with vsync off.

I voted no because for the most part I don't enable it. For some of my games it's actually needed in order to clean up some graphics issue. For instance, in DiRT 2 if I enable it, I actually GET screen tearing, but if I disable it, the tearing goes away. With City of Heroes, I enable it, because I'll get tearing if I don't. As far as the CCC is concerned, I have it set to off unless the application has it enabled.

It varies greatly for me from game to game. If the game doesn't tear too much and has some mouse lag with VSYNC on, I usually keep it off. If it tears a lot I just keep it on even if it has some lag.

I don't game much on my rig though. Just a few things here and there, usually not top tier titles that take some oomph from the hardware.

Depends on the game. If I can have it enabled without it causing input lag I will turn it on, of course if the game doesnt suffer from tearing in the first place theres no need to enable it anyway.

I've never experienced screen tearing and I never have vsync enabled. I too notice a bit of mouse lag with vsync on, albeit very subtle mouse lag.

my video card is too powerful so i leave it off.

I tend to always get tearing if I have it off. If they game is running near 60fps I leave it on. No reason to have the gpus work harder than they need to.
