The only issue I'm having with my drivers is that I can't play one of my games in full screen anymore, it's only borderless and and windowed. I'm using 390.65 with an EVGA 1050ti overclocked. Other then that my games have been running pretty solid honestly. I never have driver issues except when I was using Xfire 7850's for 4k in 7/2014, that was a nightmare.

I don't have a gsync monitor though for what it's worth.

Gsync is so good. Stupid ass premuim though. At least my monitor is a 3 year warranty.


Do they really cost 300 on average? I wasn't big on Nvidia and only read a few articles about gsync, but all it does is reduce tearing right? Does it improve framerates or something? Right now I'm just looking at a 1080p ips monitor but if gsync is worth it, I may consider it.


Here's a really good video that explains the differences between Fast Sync, G-Sync and V-Sync.

Any option is to reduce screen tearing, however each one has a different amount of input lag (the amount of time for your actions to be visible on screen).

In summary:
G-Sync has the least amount of input lag.
Fast Sync has some amount of input lag but has some noticeable micro-stutters that may be annoying.
V-Sync has the most amount input lag.

G-Sync pretty much gives you the V-Sync of the no screen tearing, but the input lag of no V-Sync. There is still input lag, but the difference is something I can handle easily. Stuttering typically doesn't happen either with G-Sync. That's if its optimized the game. Your framerate is always going to bounce, so G-Sync is very important to regulate that. I tried locking my fps to 60, but found it be much better to let the GPU run how fast it wants and let the G-Sync handle it. V-Sync does work fine though when using a gamepad however.

No vsync = no added input lag (from syncing operations), so if it's adding ANY input lag, it's worse than playing with no vsync in that regard.

There's input lag from the sync, but there's also input lag from waiting for the display. Vsync off can actually, in some cases, lag more than Gsync.

imo, the consistency of Gsync makes it better than vsync off if you're near your display's refreshrate.
