Yeah its not just the screen tearing. The Gsync makes games feel butter smooth. No jitter or frame pacing issues whatsoever and no input lag

I just got my G-Sync Monitor today and it's incredible. 27" 1440p 144hz for $460 on Amazon.
It took me like 5 minutes to calibrate it using some setting I found on a forum, but it has removed screen tearing in my games and everything just looks so crisp and smooth.

Would you mind sharing that calibration? I have the same monitor. I changed a few things in the NVIDIA control panel, but maybe you found something better.

Currently using GSync monitor, used to have a FreeSync one a year ago. The biggest change is not the lack of screen tearing, but the removal of stuttering. Problem with FreeSync is its implementation. Most of the monitors have terrible VRR range that you can't utilize it to the fullest. Well, can't complain if it doesn't add a price premium.

G-sync all the way. Freesync isn't as good in performance.

G-Sync is technically better but in practice they're the same. The only issue I ever had was Freesync in borderless windowed mode just plain didnt work sometimes for no logical reason. That's not the norm according to the internet but I never could get it to consistently work on either of my AMD GPUs(290, 480) or Freesync monitors(Nixeus Vue 24", Acer XG270HU). But on the rare occasion it did work, it was absolutely as good as my current G-sync monitor(ignoring the differences in image quality between the various monitors that wasnt related to the sync tech). Of course this was on monitors with wide freesync ranges(40-144Hz for both IIRC) too, and I've heard that narrower Freesync ranges tend to be worse but I havent had any experience with that.

And FWIW G-Sync isnt flawless for borderless windowed either, but it actually works consistently so I cant complain too much.

Unless you're using a classic windows theme in Windows 7, all borderless window gaming is done with vsync on because windows is vsynced by default

you need Fullscreen Mode to actually use gsync without vsync

Basic as well.
Also, I believe you can actually disable vsync with Aero.

I play a lot of SLI supported games so I usually leave it off because g-sync seems to f*** with the SLI scaling for me. Whenever I go single card and put g-sync on I don't notice a difference.

SLI is overrated not Gsync


SLI may only work on like 1 out of 6 games but at least its pretty damn noticeable compared to g-sync which is not when you have a 144 hz monitor and regularly hit over the 100s.

i have a normal 75 hz monitor and never notice any screen tearing etc so i don't see a point in getting a freesync/g sync monitor

at 21:9/3440x1440, between vega 64 underperforming (and being overpriced due to scalpers) and the freesync range on monitors of that aspect ratio/resolution generally being your choice of 45-60 or 80-100 gsync was the choice for me, despite the monitor costing nearly twice as much as a freesync one of the same resolution. While the price was a lot higher, gsync just has a way better range than any freesync monitors I could find, 30-100 vs 80-100. Freesync is probably better supported than that in more mainstream resolutions but for me I couldn't find what I wanted.

as far as gsync itself goes, I love it. I can't stand screen tearing and frame drops bother me as well when I can't maintain 60+, I won't say I don't notice drops now since I definitely still can, but it's just that I notice it. It's not nearly as jarring as the drops to 30 with standard vsync and doesn't bother me nearly as much.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there
