Vertical Synchorization

A setting in so many modern games that lets the game automatically detect the refresh rate of your monitor and uses it to limit the framerate you get in the game. This can reduce the horizontal tearing you get when you're getting a framerate that is higher than the refresh rate of your monitor, thus making your framerate very stable and looks smoooooth.
PC Specs:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 Conroe 2.13ghz
Gigabyte P35-S3 Motherboard
A-DATA 2x1GB DDR2 800mhz memory
Geforce 8600GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI-Express
