Default Question on Vertical Sync

Just for fun, I turned on "Wait for Vertical Sync" on Counter-Strike: Source. After turning on, gameplay seemed ALOT smoother and less choppy. Also, my fps remained VERY constant at a 60 fps. Is this supposed to happen? Even when I'm in close combat, my fps would go to 80fps max, and even in big outdoor maps like de_aztec, my fps would STILL be 60. Before I turned Vertical Sync on, my frames would go up to 130 frames in close combat, and drop down to about 30 in big maps. I tried looking at fps_max XXX in console; its set at 300, so nothing's wrong there in the commands.
