I was wondering the same thing myself.I just got a 6800 ultra and it seems like vsync doesn't actually work.I can set it to always on,or application preference but it doesn't seem to do anything.The same thing with my kids 5700 oc.We both have the same drivers,66.93.I have another machine with a Ti 4400 and 56.72 drivers and it works on that one.I tried those drivers with my ultra and it wouldn't recognize the card.Kinda makes me wish I didn't put my 9800 pro in the wifes Shuttle.

Why does any one actually want VSYNC? Well if you do need it most games can control VSYNC in the game. But my VSYNC control works fine in and out of games, which is why I make sure it, is turned off most of the time.

I want it on to stop the tearing when I play some of my games.I realize that it slows your fps but I bought my ultra so I would get the best posible image and an image that tears when you turn side to side doesn't seem that great to me.I don't need to have the highest fps.I know what this card is capable of.If I need to turn vsync off to get a higher score in 3dmark,I can deal with that.I'm just a little P.O.ed that my $500 video card looks worse than one I paid $200 for.Although I have to admit it only seems to be a problem on opengl games.Doom and Half life don't seem affected.I was just curious about why turning it on seems to have no affect.

Doom 3 is an OpenGL game. You should set your card to "high quality". Maybe then use some more AA and AF and your image quality should be great. Well you should be a little PO'ed because your card is over priced you should have just gotten a 6800GT and OC it in small amounts to get Ultra performance. ;)

Thanks for the advice.You are right it is an overpriced card but I didn't pay$500 for it.Maybe I am mistaken about the opengl thing.It seems like it is older games that have the tearing problem.For example,quake 3,rtcw,and mooaa.I turned everything up to the max,the image quality is phenomenal,it's just the tearing that has got me annoyed.I can work around.I found some console commands "r_swapinterval 1"that seems to limit my fps to 60 which is the refresh rate of my lcd.Then everything is beautiful.It's just that on my old 9800 pro I didn't have to do that and my fps would go higher than 60.I guess that's a compromise I have to make because like I said,newer games like doom don't seem to be affected.But I thought I read somewhere about doom limiting your fps to 60 but that might be in multiplayer.

Use RivaTuner which is available at www.guru3d.com to fiddle with whatever settings you want in your video card. It is the best utility out there for this purpose.

Thank you!I was kinda wondering why someone wouldn't want it on.What's the point of having a decent card if the image looks like garbage.Because you have higher fps?I bought my 6800 ultra so I could turn on all the eye-candy.
