I have aiw radeon 9600xt 128 ram. In counterstrike source I run it in direct x 7 and keep vsync on. I noticed that when i turn vsync off and keep all the other video settings the same, there is a tremendous boost in fps. With vsync on, the fps maxes out at 60. It fluctuates a little below but always pops back to exactly 60 and nothing more. When I turn off vsync the fps will reach over 100 and will fluctuate more and will not have one number that it will always be at. In other words, when vsync is off it appears that my video card is truly pumping out all the frames it can depending on the environment I'm in in the game. When vsync is on it is obvious that the fps is restricted by something because as the environment changes (less detailed) the fps will only stay at 60 or go below 60, never above. You may be thinking that its because i have vsync on and im an idiot for asking, but it is very obvious that the fps is restricted to a max of 60 with vsync on. Is there a setting to allow more fps with vsync on?
