I keep vsync on in arma, input lag is noticable but arma is not that high paced anyway.

Before the latest nVidia drivers which allow for Adaptive Vsync, I was using Vsync + Triple Buffering, which has to be forced via a program like D3DOverrider. Setting Triple Buffering in the control panel does nothing for Direct3D stuff.

Now I just use Adaptive Vsync.

I use Track IR and I find I need to have Vsync off or I get annoying "jittering" when panning my view. This is playing on server where my FPS are between 25-30. I would normally have VSYNC on if my FPS where higher as I find tearing quite distracting. I haven't really noticed if triple buffer with VSYNC makes any difference. I'd have to guess no.

It removes the screen tearing.

Off and off, always. Screen tearing doesn't bother me compared to input lag. Besides, I can run my screen at 76hz which helps.
