It basically restricts you FPS's to the refresh rate of your monitor. At 60hz, 60 fsb maximum. 75hz, 75 fps maximum. And so on. Personally I'd deactivate it

I don't think my card restricts my frame rate, I never touch the V-Sync and get 130 fps in quake 3 demo and 80ish in UT. It would also seem that my 5900 3dMark 2001 would be affected.
