What, no, vsync always introduces plenty of input lag. You also can't go above 60 on a 60Hz monitor if you have vsync enabled since it caps the fps.

To me games feel like garbage with vsync enabled, with adaptive sync you can get away with lower FPS and still have decent input lag, otherwise you need to push FPS higher than the monitor's refresh rate. Tearing is less noticeable on a high refresh rate display which I'd recommend for gaming.

I personally went from 4k60Hz to 1080p144Hz and then 1440p165 with G-sync, and honestly the first upgrade was the more significant one for me. I don't really pay that much attention to graphical fidelity when immersed to the game, and high refresh rate with low input lag does wonders for the immersion.
