Vsync and Frame Cap both set to 60?

So I have a pretty decent rig (specs in my sig) and I am a framerate nut all the way. Which is probably why I still play at 1920x1080. I have my vsynch set to 60 and the framecap set to 60. Is there any reason to set the frame cap higher than 60 since vsync caps it anyway? I have read it will reduce stuttering but was curious of the effect coupled with the vsynch on?

    i set the frame limiter to 120 in advanced settings and set vsync on and it keeps it at 120 the entire time for me. i guess the game relies alot on cpu power in this one like bf1 did a bit. i believe, dont get mad if im wrong.

    Yeah when I have it set to vsync/60 my CPU load is about 60% and my GPU is about 50%. I run everything on high instead of Ultra. I could use more GPU/CPU but I prefer it this way. I like not having to push my GPU/CPU to its max and still get an enjoyable experience.

    I don't recommend using vsync. It created mad input lag.

    In my case I can feel the input lag that is applied with vsync on. Others might have a different result, who knows.
