To turn this off open your display properties, go to the settings tab and click advanced. Then select the tab with the name of your graphics card on it and (this bit might depend on the graphics card) select the "performance and quality settings" tab on the left side. In the "Global driver settings" sub window there should be vertical sync, which you select. The slider at the bottom should have 2 options: On and off. You want off. If it's set to application controlled I'd turn that off just for good measure.
Also, most good monitors can do more than 60 anyways, and I find it nicer on my eyes with it a bit higher so you might want to change that too.
To answer the original question: Ca3DE has no artifical limit for the frame-rate, but it doesn't force the vsync off, either (future versions probably will).
Thus, RAZOR is right: I too would advise to turn the vsync manually off in the Display Properties settings. (Although that of course introduces shear artifacts that are experienced with all graphics software, not just Ca3DE.)
With the vertical sync turned off, you may try to enter "r_style 4" into the Ca3DE console, or even try 0 to 3 instead of 4. This should really get your FPS high, thus indicating that vsync is really off.
If in r_style 0...4 you cannot get more than 60 FPS, something else must be interfering (something that should not, e.g. a faulty driver etc.).
If in r_style 0...4 the FPS is well above 60, but is not in the default r_style with dynamic lighting (the number depends on if you have an NVidia or ATI graphics board), then 60 may be the real limit in that mode.
Another indication that vsync is still on is when the FPS always drops in a 1/n fashion: 120, 60, 30, 15, 7.5, but not really any values in between...
