I FINALLY discovered the right combination of settings & drivers for perfect mouse response in Win 7 - Page 2

post #11 of 54
Roach I have seen you talk about this before citing that nvidia drivers cause mouse lag.

Before i bought my 680 GTX you had me so convinced about mouse lag and nvidia drivers that i was nervous about getting this card (Which i shouldn't be, the switch was awesome and Nvidia is my new graphics super hero). I was running a ATI card at the time and had no mouse lag.

So fast foward and i have my 680 GTX with the 301.10 drivers and i can conclude i have not noticed any difference in input lag as you have described in numerous forums.

So whats up?

same here, using a GTX 560 Ti.
never experienced any kind of mouse lag. same feeling on Nvidia and AMD graphic.
i had once, but that was on my old computer running amazing OS windows vista.
people make themselves mad by thinking about the tiny tiny tiny things.

Ever used a CRT? Miss the responsiveness and lack of input lag, even compared to a 120hz TFT? Can you see a visual difference between a mouse at 125hz and 250hz+ (choppy turns)?

No? The level of input lag introduced by drivers and/or prerendering is so minor that few people will notice. Some of us are very sensitive to such things however. I envy the majority who aren't.

haha sure i notice mate.
i used a CRT really until my last backup CRT died.
got a 2233rz after it, needed months to get used to it.
sure i feel a difference. same on mouse hz.
i know a lot of ppl using the 2233rz 120 hz in 100fps games like cs.
i can't. feels like lagging around.
i rather take the annoying stripe on the monitor then no stripe and lags.

Yes it's frusturating because people make things out to be a HUGE deal when in reality it's an isolated thing possibly to do with his setup and by going around the internet saying nvidia drivers have this elusive input lag problem is just unecessary.

They do. Can you even notice the difference in input lag between having scaling set to the default of "Display - Aspect Ratio" and "Display - No Scaling", like in this picture?

If you can't notice the input lag from changing that setting, you're not going to notice the input lag difference in certain drivers either. For me, it's really easy to tell 301.24 has higher input lag than 296.10.

It's a total placebo effect...why? because i noticed a difference between the two and realized i was not even hitting APPLY!!! so most likely a placebo...i went ahead and hit apply and i can't see any difference.

Um, most hardcore FPS people can easily notice the difference in those settings. Since you notice a difference without hitting apply, it just means you're not good at detecting input lag....

Do i have to change the settings accordingly in program settings too like for games (bf3) or is global settings enough?
