enabling Vsync just drops my frame rate. it's annoying, but disabling it increases my frame rate and causes screen tearing and it grinds my gears.


is this an issue you just gotta deal with or what?

Vsync doesn't decrease your performance. It limits it to your monitor refresh rate. What fps are you getting with it on and with it off?

As I understand it, Vsync will run you at 60fps unless it drops below, then it will run you at 30fps.

Enable triple buffering too.

Does that setting override anything?

If your mobo supports Virtu you can use that. Gets rid of screen tearing but doesn't cap your framerate.

But if your framerate is under 60 triple buffering might fix the performance problems you're having.

Only a few games work with the Triple Buffering that is enabled through the NCP. Your best bet is to download D3DOverrider and enable Triple Buffering (and V-Sync of course) through that. After that, keep the program running in the background and disable the in-game V-Sync.

When the game is launched, a "beeping" sound will notify you that the D3D software is working.
