Hello, I have a 980ti with a new 165hz monitor. Im playing Cold War currently when the fps goes from 80-100+ is butter smooth but when it gets to 70fps the monitor acts like a 60hz one. If I enable VSYNC it will be butter smooth? Because I know my GPU cant go further than 165fps with the settings I have... Almost everything on the max.
You should drop your expectations for the GPU, maybe run the games at 60FPS but increase in-game details at higher resolutions. If you were on a latter generation GPU, then yes you'd be seeing 165Hz at favorable frames.
