"*Video Sync*. With this option you can /enable///disable/ Vsync in the 
Game. Vsync effectively limits the frame rate to your current refresh 
rate at any given resolution. Frame rate can be perceivably /increased/ 
when set to *Off* (/disabled/), as frames are rendered as fast as they 
can be regardless of refresh rate, although you may experience image 
tearing &/or controller lag as a result. With this set to *On* 
(/enabled/) you won’t experience either image tearing nor controller 
lag, although frame rate will be limited to your refresh rate. As such 
I’d recommend /enabling/ Vsync for best image quality & /disabling/ it 
when you intend to benchmark system/game performance."

Turning off vsynch should only give an increase in framerates if refresh 
rate is the limiting factor. With a monitor less than a few years old 
that's very unlikely to be the case, so you're better off leaving it on.
