Hi everyone, not 100% sure this is the correct place to ask this, but im thinking about getting a freesync monitor to hopefully resolve an issue im having.
I notice my games aren't 100% smooth if above the refresh rate(unless it goes way above 120fps), i have thought this is normal, isnt it? Would a freesync monitor solve this? Im currently using a CRT by the way. I wanted to make sure this is related to the monitor before making a big purchase. Vsync seems to get everything super smooth though, so i've been rolling with that in every game.
These are some examples of what im refering to:https://youtu.be/5b9rRInNISA
without vsync. https://youtu.be/ocBYfNpwE1Q
with it on. And this one https://youtu.be/hADoyh-vXMk
capped at 61 for good measure. If i uncap the framerate and it goes above 160fps its practically unnoticeable.
Oh and this screen supports 85hz at 800x600, again with vsync on its perfect, otherwise not so good.
Assuming this is indeed the monitor, is freesync the only option? I ask, because the prices in my country are disgusting when it comes to these type of screens ($700 for an Asus Vg248qe and $1100 for an Acer Xf270h lol).
Any help is most appreciated.
