How do you lock it or know for sure? Driver's 61.72, I'm used to the ati, I just put this BFG 6800 GT in, Forget It, I found out, how easy. :)

Two ways. "Vsync" and "Refresh rate overrides"

You can turn off VSync, but you still won't get higher fps in games and such unless you install coolbits.

I'm not sure what powerstrip does, so it may do the same. Coolbits unlocks the hidden registry line that allows overclocking and unlocks the vsync lock that win xp has. For instance, when I played Ghost Recon without it, with vsync off, I was getting a steady 79 fps, but with coolbits, I've gotten as high as 260+. My actual fps now with my current settings are in the 100's, sometimes up around 200. That's at 4xAA, 8xAF, High Quality, 1024x768, OC'd 512/1.02. Anyways, if you need coolbits, you can get it in the Coolbits 2 thread.

Because that Vsync slider bar is for Direct3D only.

*edit - actually I just tested the Vsync off in 61.72 WHQL and now it seems to be working in both Direct3D and OpenGL. Cool.
