    i have a big dilemma with v-sync.
    What's better?? have v-sync on or off??

    Counter Strike gives me 100 fps in my gefroce4 ti 4200 with v-sync off in both opengl and direct3, but graphics seem to be not that good.
    If v-sync is on, Counter Strike gives me 60 fps in opengl and direct3d. Graphics with opengl seem to be better but direct3d feels the same as vsync off.

    So i have this big problem because i dont know what's better??
    V-sync or on off??

    Any replys will be helpful.

    My config:
    p4 1.8 ghz
    256 DDR233
    geforce4 ti 4200
    monitor refresh rate 75 hertz
    40 GB HDD

    leave it off. and turn on antialiasing and anisotropic filtering instead. also, with your card don't use d3d. use opengl.

    i turned it off to test what you say.

    I turned on antialiasing to 4x and antisotronic to 8x and it looks the same as before.

    If i have vsync on I dont see these lines when moving the mouse horizontally, but if turn it off I do see them.
