I have an Asus G752VY and wondering if i should use G sync in overwatch and any tips on the 3D settings in the nvidia control panel because i have trouble aiming now. My graphics card is the GTX 980M with 8GB Vram and 24gb ram.

I dont use Gsync as its a guaranteed drop in FPS unless Im getting tearing.

As for 3D settings set the first to max performance, then select use 3d settings
set single display performance mode and everything near the bottom to max performance. Top portion can be left at default
If you have Gforce experience installed and/or game first remove that garbage.

I have a GTX 980M with 8gb vram, so I should everything to performance? Also will this make the game look terrible? I have 150-200 with low settings in overwatch, but something about the aim is bugging me.

Why not use gsync? Who cares if you're getting 150-200fps pushed out of your gpu if you're on a 75hz monitor.

So how do I enable G sync correctly?

Open the Nvidia Control Panel, go to set up G-SYNC, and enable it from there. You can choose to enable it for fullscreen applications only or for both fullscreen and windowed applications.

Why use GSync if you are not experiencing tearing when its a guaranteed performance hit. You are not going to get 150-200fps in anything but mine sweeper.
Run 3D marks with it enabled and disabled. Guaranteed minimum 200 point hit.

Screen tearing is caused when the display cranking out frames faster then your card can render them. It slows the display to match the output of the GPU. So if you are getting 30 FPS in a game it will drop the display to 30Hz, not slowing the GPU to match the display. The faster the display the more likely you are to experience tearing. I'm running a 165Hz display and rarely experience tearing. If I do its easy enough to turn Gsync on, but for the most part like 99.99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999% of the time, its off.

I only posted what is changed from default and use the same settings on all my machines. Through a lot of trial an error these setting work best for me.
