If I get a 240 Hz monitor, like the BenQ ZOWIE XL2546, should I still be using the method above (Gsync on, Vsync off in game, on in control panel and cap FPS to 237 with RTSS) or should I uncap my framerate with Vsync and Gsync off? The reason I ask is a lot of pros in FPS games such as Apex, Siege, CSGO, seem to do the latter and I can’t understand why, unless G-sync isn’t available on those monitors, but I read that G-sync is available on freesync monitor’s now with 10xx and above cards, am I wrong? Greatly appreciate any input!

Which one has the lowest input lag?
1. Gsync + Vsync + Low Latency Mode at Ultra (no fps limit)
2. Gsync + Vsync + NVC/RTSS fps limit (3fps below Refresh rate)

Hi, I understand that we should use Vsync On when using Gsync. But with the new LG OLED C9, which is gsync compatible, if I have Vsync “ON” I get some microstutter every 10s or so. But if I keep vsync off, the game is 100% smooth (I have the FPS capped at 3fps below the TVs refresh rate). One friend of mine has the same issue with his C9. Do you know why this is happening?

(Gsync off/Gsync not supported) 144hz 144fps CAP(ingame) (no v-sync) this

144hz 139fps cap(ingame) (no v-sync)
Is it correct to lose input lag than condition?

If I turn off v-sync, is it the same as 139 or 144 cap?
Is a 139fps limit good for 144hz even on a regular monitor? in a v-sync off.
Sorry for the beginner. i love blurbusters
