Screen tearing adaptive vsync 60fps

So as the title says i get screen tearing with adaptive vsync or with vsync. My setup is gtx960 4gb,i5 4460, 60hz.

This is not a hardware problem beceuase in my older pc(gtx 960 2gb,i3 4170) i also had the same problem, so i sold my pc and built a completely new pc without any issues but i get screen tearing(not that bad though) anyway in some games is more that others for example cs go and league of legends has a notiable ammount of screen tearings same goes for cod aw, but at games like mad max,shado of mordor is not that bad. I gues the problem is my monitor i also tried a different one but nah :(. Well any way to fix this issue? im going to buy in some month a 144hz monitor but i want smooth gameplay for now

    Screen tearing is when your graphics card tried to get your monitor to display more frames per second than it is capable of. V-Sync was one thing introduced to fix this issue.
    A while ago ( I was using a GTX 970 ). I was struggling to maintain 60 FPS in a game so I tried Adaptive V-Sync, and I got tearing as well. It seemed if it bounced from FPS in the mid 50's up, it sometimes bounced into the Low 60's instead of stopping at 60; causing it to tear.

    However, I have never had an issue with normal V-sync. Although it has some other issues, it does seem to stop my tearing. When you try normal V-sync ( controlled by the ingame settings ) what happens?
