    Default Whats VSYNC?

    While installing games on my new system, I've ran across many that suppot VSYNC. By defualt this has always been disabled. Should I be enabling this setting in the video game menus when I'm using an ATI Radeon X700 pro video card?

    No. I'm mostly just curious if someone knows if my card supports it and if I should have it enabled for better performance.

    Disable it. It limits the video performance to an FPS rate no higher than the refresh rate that the monitor is set to. It usually gives worse performance numbers.

    Thanks for the info. My highest monitor refresh rate with this 18in LCD screen is 75mhz so that wouldn't be a good thing.
