    V-Sync helps reducing lagging?

    I was playing Stars War. The game movies played @ 1253 FPS!! And in-game, FPS was all good well over 134. Problem was stuttering. So I turned VSync on to lock it to my cheap BenQ monitors refresh rate @ 60 FPS. NOW, it's butterly smooth. Why? is that so?

    Hi folks, I read somewhere (which I have lost the link) saying that the RTX 2060 cannot utilize the full range of refresh rate (60~144Hz) of the display at 1080 native resolution. Is that claim true? Could somebody confirm this?

    Which node should I use? Will either do? As you can see one of them has a VERY thick stem which can hardly bend, if I use that thick one, I might not be able to close the case with the tempered glass. How come today's PCIe power cable so thick? Frustrating!
