Made an updated Guide for StarCitizen performance - this should help everyone's overall performance, specially on lower end rigs.

A nice 144hz monitor should solve your issue then! :D
Maybe there's another setting issue somewhere then, as while not quite 144hz, my monitor IS pretty decent at 120hz with a G-Sync compatible* Freesync Ultimate engine. . . It's this one:
Where does SC's vsync FPS cap come from? Is it adjustable? Does it only go in increments of 60 so even if I'm running at 119 it'll chop it to 60?

Yeah man. Like I'm talking 1-2 decades old HDDS too. I'm definitely gonna get some SSDs very soon, and a new screen so I can actually use a new graphics card.
I was about to say definately due an upgrade but then remembered my game machine is made from parts that were cutting-edge in 2012 - a decade ago :-/

Huh, interesting. Vsync should not cap you to anything other than your monitors hz but it can cause your max FPS to drop and input lag. Other than those in your case it should run at 120fps cap with your monitor. I dunno specifically how SC vsync works cos it's the first thing I turn off after a patch, but maybe it is some weird implementation that caps you at 60?

Not sure what would cause it, never really had any experience with tearing before, literally never had it. All i know for a fact is its best to keep Vsync turned off.
When its turned on it can cause Higher Frame Times, Increased Input Lag and Hard Cap your Frame Rate, can also cause on screen stuttering because of these things.

SC's implementation of it is terrible.
