Currently i have a dell m991 monitor.. When i play Cs i experience tearing and must turn on vsync that makes my fps drop to about 75 on average. What would be a good monitor where i could not use vsync and get a solid 100fps? Without vsync i get 100 fps solid with tearing. Please help

Ehm...yeah....you don't know what is happening around you, do you? A video card controls/renders video, a monitor displays it. You must be confused. post stats.

Is it a CRT? (Big One) How fast if your processor? How much RAM? Tearing isn't caused by monitors, it's caused by videocards....

save your money, 75hz is not bad, yea maybe your card can handle higher FPS but your not going to notice the difference when your averaging that high. try lowering the D3D setting and if vsync is cleaning up the tears and artifacts then leave it on.
