Okay, so there is no need for me to turn off the freesync option in the monitor settings right? (thank you for your help btw)
Nope, no need, just in nvidia driver enable Nvidia Gsynch and your freesynch would work.
Before they were competitors, Freesynch and Gsynch, but Gsynch monitors are a lot more expensive, so people don't buy them as much and Nvidia was forced to make a driver, when you enable Gsynch it is compatible with Freesynch and works on Freesynch monitors.

I don't have the "Set up Gsynch " option in my NVIDIA control panel under the Display menu, i see other people have it but i do not get that option for some reason... :/
