^ Really good points.

So far, the monitor is great. I definitely notice increased smoothness. The only issue is my PC can't sustain 240 FPS. G-Sync is awesome, really makes gaming buttery smooth. One issue I am having though is using RTSS. I can't cap my FPS to 238. The max FPS cap is 200. Any solutions?

This is just a UI issue. The author has locked the UI to a 200FPS maximum cap. I'm sure he has his reasons (he's a bit... weird when it comes to software design.)

You can modify the RTSS profile file directly though. In the RTSS installation directory, there's a "Profiles" folder. You can edit the "Global" file and put whatever cap you want there.

Write the author of RTSS, and link them to this thread -- about 240Hz monitors and the need for framerate capping on them.

Can't find the link, but this has come up on his Guru3D forum section. "Power users" should go through the config file. The UI will probably keep the 200FPS maximum.

But if enough people want the feature, maybe he will concede though. So, yeah.

The forum section is this one:
