it should be in manage 3d settings. go to the game choose your graphics card and scroll all the way down until you get to v sync and put it in use 3d application. if not idk whats wrong or it could be that your using the intel hd 4000.

@kanha1998, With Nvidia cards there is a adaptive Vsync mode which is better than it being off in the Nvidia panel. http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/04/16/nvidia_adaptive_vsync_technology_review/

thats only useful if you get framerates is faster than your refresh rate. if not its better to keep it turned off. it basically makes it so instead of dropping framerates to 30 it drops to 50,45,30 etc.

@kanha1998. No its not just useful if you get framerates higher then your refresh rate, you would turn Vsync completly on if it were that case. It does not work that way, the way Adaptive works is if the framerate goes above your refresh rate than Vsync is turned on automatically (meaning that your FPS will be your refresh rate), but then when your FPS drops below your monitor refresh rate (So maybe something intensive happended) it will not drop the framerate it will automatically turn Vsync off meaning that you will get just as much FPS as if it were disabled in the settings.

it could also be a bug in the driver. if theres an update install it and see how well the game runs. if not go to one of the previous updates and install those and see if the game works better. if not talk with your manufacturer.

i looked up the garry's mod specs and your computer should handle it better than which you have stated. people with intel hd 4000's could run it without lag. so theres no excuse for your pc getting less than stellar framerates on gmod

well thats a good idea. I personally use a very good gaming laptop as a desktop. Its powerful enough to handle every game ( crysis 3, metro lastlight, etc) on ultra 720p and achieve 20+ fps. I really dont know why you'd want two pc's unless you have infinte funding, then by all means buy two pc's.

High settings, put it on medium though because it might lag when there are like 10 players close to you and there all firing. The game looks pretty much just as good on every setting, there's only some improvements in shadows and some textures :)

It could, but I don't know for sure. I mean I have Windows XP and Win 7, and I tested few games on both. Sometimes I had lower FPS on 7 because of my weak CPU, so if you really care about that, go ahead and check it if you want. Anyway it should wait for approval of some expert.

Ultra settings with aa off, you should get like 40+ fps. A tip: Press "`" to open up the console in the main menu of the game and type "fps_max 60" that will make the game run at 60 frames per second. Enjoy!
