Pentium 4 2ghz 1GB of DDRAM GA-81EXP Mobo (Latest Bios) GeForce4 Ti 4600 29.42 drivers 4xS AA, Ansio Disabled, Vsync off I seem to get a lot of tearing when I play 3d games. When I turn vsync back on, there's no more tearing, but frames per seconds is capped. Ansio doesn't do much either. It doesn't make the tearing go away. I have 4xS because I want maximum antialiasing. The tearing only happens when you view textures far away such as landscape or far away houses. I want to max out my GeForce4 Ti 4600, plz help. Any suggestions? My refresh rate is set at 60hz. I asked my friends, they said that since I have vsync off, my refresh rate at 60, and I'm getting fps 100+, that'll cause tearing.. so does this mean that if I set my refresh rate higher (even if vsync is off), i won't get as much tearing? Also, my aperture size is set at 128MB. I have noticed a major difference in smoothness from 60fps and 100fps+. All my older video cards had vsync off and getting around 100fps also, but it showed no tearing. My friend has a TNT2 getting around 100fps+, vsync off, and no tearing too. Any utilities to check if I have my AGP at 4X, and etc other stuff that I should make sure be checked?
