    your refresh rate of your monitor will limit your FPS inconjuction with Vsync. If your refresh rate is 60 and Vsync is on, you will only get 60FPS. You can turn off vsynce on your video card properties or within each game.

    for CS to get over 60 fps goto the console and enter fps_max 99 and it will raise your FPS to 99 if your card can output that much

    with vsync turned off the game looks choppy. i never used to have to turn vsync off. and i know the commands for CS. i had it before that my fps_max was like 100 something and it never went pass 85fps. the programs made my refresh rate 85 instead of 60. but now they dont work. i guess i'll try downloading old drivers.

    You try RefreshForce?

    It still works with the newer Forceware drivers.
