Losing performance due to my TFT?....
Just got myself a BFG 6800 Ultra and it's great! Just when I think my system is all setup and spot-on, I get another problem... my TFT screen!

I get tearing on the screen, I guess this is due to the response time of the screen, if I enable V-Sync it gets rid of the problem, however it loses me 20,00 Aquamarks!... If I run Aquamark I get 70,000 marks but with V-Sync enabled it goes down to 50,000 markss.

I'm just wondering if I should get rid of my TFT and go back to my old monitor so that I don't have to enable V-Sync and lose performance. However I don't really want to part with my TFT, it's an 18" Compaq TF8030 and cost me quite a few 's...

Any ideas/comments would be appreciated. I mean the TFT looks nice on the desktop, but if I'm not getting the most out of my 6800 then I guess it's got to go.

Aquamark its a benchmark, all benchmarks cause tearing, no need to run it with vsync on.

I should have also put I get tearing in all the games I play and the only way to get rid of it is with v-sync on, but if I lose marks in Aquamark surely it means that my games aren't running at the maximum fps my card can provide.

You don't need max fps, its better to crank up AA/AF and play at 60FPS instead of 100fps without AA/AF.
