Overcomming input lag and screen tearing, need help

Playing mostly taxing games like COD 4 blackout, witcher III, gtaV and the likes I am always faced with the same issue. Namely: to choose between (1) v-sync enabled, no screen tearing but stutters and high input lag or (2) v-sync off, screen tearing heavily but no input lag.


I have tested this extensively and this seems to be the case in most games. In fast games like COD4 Blackout I cannot stand the high input lag that comes with v-sync. But at the same time, I cannot stand the extreme screen tearing (sometimes 3 tears simultaneously) that occurs without v-sync. So I would like to ask your advice. What do you do to solve this issue?


I have heard G-Sync monitors try to solve this issue. My question to you is: Do you have a g-sync monitor and does it actually work as good as advertised? Or is there still some input lag or screen tearing going on?
