The instant I enable/disable Vsync the issue is removed. If I am consistently around 120~130 fps I try and run Vsync on as I am not losing anything but running at a flat 120 FPS, but in some random titles, its been 60 or even 30 FPS cap. Its atrocious laggy, far more than what I think 60 FPS would be. I also want mention that you should never feel laggy at 80 fps, so a faulty monitor maybe a possibility, monitors are not immune from faults. You may see screen tearing under 120 fps on a 120 hz monitor, but it should still feel very fluid at 60+ fps.

I have managed to improve this at times, but ALT+Tabbing in and out of games, or switching Fullscreen to Window Mode back to Fullscreen can alleviate this issue.

After a while, I assume with driver/profile updates, this issue has slowly disappeared for me, that and I have SLI which is definitely a powerhouse for gaming.

Try different driver sets. I had really good performance in beta drivers 267.85/ 267.59 /267.91.
I Tried all of those drivers. When you got that monitor was that fresh install of windows 7 ? Because im going to go ahead and format and see if that may solve something. I plan on SLIing soon so i can play newer games in 3D with a bit more performance. but i dont think i need to SLI to play Black ops with max setting and AA and CSS and MW2 and so on (in 2D). BFBC2 i can see having some issues and crysis 1. I have vsync off. It just seems that if i dont have over 120 fps it just doesn't want to run right. and even at that fps i still feel some laggy feelings when i move the mouse or when the MAP becomes a big stretch of land. Maybe its me.... idk. I know theres a differnt feeling between 60hz and 120hz but shouldnt 60hz still feel smooth too ?


Should i give DELL a call then ?

Yes it should, but if they did something wrong in the firmware it might not be working right.

You are using a dual link DVI cable right?

Do you have the ability to borrow another monitor (different brand) that's 120 Hz?

Don't forget that despite the GTX 580 being a powerhouse to maintain 120 fps in alot of games requires SLI especially for 3D. The reason for that is you need two overlapping screens at 60 fps, and people have shown an extra sensitivity to sub-60 fps causing nausea, headaches, or eyestrain.

So most people dismiss SLI for a single monitor without thinking about those considerations. I personally considered tri-sli for my single monitor for future readiness and the 120+ fps in almost all but I would have waited on price drops.

No no no!

Never use v-sync from in-game options, as it will 99% of the time force it to 60fps and will give bad view-feeling on a 120hz monitor.

You need to make sure that the nvidia v-sync is on, in-game v-sync is off, and make sure that the resolution in nvidia control panel is indeed set to the monitor's native at 120hz,
