Only vsync can fix tearing.

And in fact, 60fps /w vsync looks smoother than 200 without.

Just ignore the numbers and go with what actually looks better

Sadly this isnt an option in most games (only one ive seen it in is World of Warcraft) but on the bright side there is software out there to force it, dont know how well it actually works tho.
Catylist has an option for it...idk about Nvidias drivers though.
Very nice!

Yea Catalyst Control Center has triple buffering....oh wait
V-Sync will help as well as refresh rate.
Try an app called refresh force:

This works well if your GFX driver isn't allowing you to select your LCD/CRT's max refresh rate.
IMO V-Sync is a total waste of time.
Here is a good guide to read for all your graphical needs:

HL2 also lets you set the filtering (as well as any other source game)

Yes, but a 60 Hz monitor only updates 60 times a second - your graphics card can do 5 million FPS, but only 60 will get through - the tearing is more trying to go on there at the same time - you might as well enable vSync because then your graphics card won't always be at 100%, making it a little cooler

Its not - 50 fps imo is enough, but the human eye registers way more than 100 fps.

Really wish we could crush this rumour once and for all

nHancer has a triple buffering option, btw

Yeah its bad for me in Oblivion too, along with FEAR.

From what I have noticed, tearing happens a lot more at low FPS because I get like 20-50FPS in those games lol.

My eyes can tell a huge difference between 60 and 85+. Anything over 120 for me is unnoticeable.
