How to reduce screen tearing when Vsync off?

    My LCD monitor runs at 60hz, so with Vsync off I use a frame limiter in order to limit the tearing.
    I've tried to frame cap @ 59,60,61 but it's not very good.
    Do you have some advices to reduce the tearing?

    Thanks a lot.

    Screen tear is pretty much unavoidable without vsync enabled. It's why vsync exists.

    I don't seem to get bad if at all with it off. More problems with it on for some reason

    I switch VSync off because of the input lag.

    But there is a cost: screen tearing

    Personally I find the screen tear and stuttering (with vsync off) much more distracting than input lag (with vsync on). As above, input lag has never been much of an issue to me anyway. I guess other people are more sensitive to it.

    What does input lag look like?
