    Hi, I have a GTX 1060 6GB and an AOC Agon AG271QG which is 1440p, G-Sync and 165 Hz refresh rate.

    Now.. I know my 1060 is not able to take advantage of that monitor, but to get the most out of my GPU I want to know what game settings I should be choosing. I would like to stay at 1440 and not go back to 1080. The game I am currently playing (Far Cry New Dawn) is running very nicely on ultra settings @ 1440.
    I do have G-Sync enabled in the NVIDIA Control Panel. But the games give me more options... for example:

    When it asks me to set the refresh rate, should I go high? low? What does this to to my performance?

    Do I want V-Sync on? Off? (I know V-Sync is an AMD feature. Does it have any effect on my system?)

    Do I want to "enable frame rate lock" ?

    I mostly use this system for photography, but I do like some games and am hoping to learn more about these settings and how to get the most out of them.
    Thank you very much.
