    Im pretty sure you'll have to look into the Game settings. I have Red Alert 3 and its laggy so I went to its main menu-settings-graphics and turned VSync Off

    Vsync will be in the game's graphics settings.

    But Vsync won't increase your FPS, all it does it limit it to the refresh rate of your monitor to prevent screen tearing.

    You're getting low FPS because of crossover if anything.
