hello. so i got my BenQ XL2430T, should i turn off my vsync or turn on? im playing assassins creed origins at 55-70 fps. (50-55fps on full crowd place) so the point is should i off the v-sync so i can use the 144hz? or turned on the vsync?, for my own perspective i guess its smooth when i off the v-sync in my own.

That's not how vsync works.

 

It syncs the your fps with your monitor's refresh rate. If your GPU can't push 144fps, it'll be a horrible, stuttery mess.
I'd leave that off. Definitely off.

Since you aren't hitting 144FPS leave it off. It's beneficial when you're pushing past 144FPS so you don't get micro stuttering or tearing but not recommended if you're below that threshold.

Should always leave V-sync off anyways for latency reasons.


What CPU/GPU?

Lower your graphical settings, your CPU should be able to get about 100fps average, Shadows/AA are easy to turn off for more performance. At that point if you want to get rid of screen tearing enable fast-sync, but you'll have to change your monitor to about 90hz or 75hz.

Fast-sync requires you to be above your monitor refresh rate.

Strongly disagree with that. Having it locked to your refresh rate leads to an overall smoother experience, and latency doesn't matter most of the time. I notice if I'm playing on a TV, but not on a decent monitor.

You aren't going to have a 144fps average in general, and fast sync/enhanced sync do the same thing but without added l latency if adaptive sync isn't available.

That depends on if you are going to adjust your settings or not. It seems like you got a 144hz monitor without realizing that you need to hit a high frame rate for it to look good.

Maybe you have super human eyes, but I'm not convinced that the latency added by V-sync isn't just the placebo affect.

144hz displays are going to look fine even if you aren't hitting 144fps without V-sync, there's less time to notice issues like screen tearing.

 

Going to depend on the game, a game like CS:GO/Dota is going to cause you to notice lag better than say The Witcher 3.

Stuttering is quite apparent though. I have a 144hz monitor, but I greatly prefer V-Sync at 60hz to a fluctuating 100-140.

 

I will concede that everyone is different though. The OP just needs to find what's best for him/her.

I'm in a similar position due to the games I play.

I have a 144hz monitor, but play unoptimised multiplayer first person shooter games that are very demanding and despite having a very powerful rig I can't hold 144hz in 1440p.

For years now I have used MSI Afterburner/Riva Tuner. It allows you to fix the FPS at a set rate. In my case I play everything at 90FPS. I do get drops to mid 60's in some games, but only very brief. 95% of the time i'm at 90.

I havn't noticed any input lag this way (less important to you as your not playing multiplayer first person shooters), I set a custom refresh rate in NVIDIA panel to 90 and away I go. I also get to monitor loads of stats live in game, I am a true PC gaming performance nerd so that helps with lots of stuff. 

As a competitive, but very bad player I find the consistency of 90 helps my game, and also got rid of the headaches I would get after several hours intense play. I am also not pushing my rig to the max all the time so temps are great.
