Well, I have been experiencing screen tearing with anything I do (watching movies, playing games, moving windows around.

This first happened on my previous computer, had an integrated gpu on the motherboard. An AOC F22 monitor and a Hannspree HSG1066 monitor, happened on both. Running @ 60Hz

This my current computer also has screen tearing. GTX 670, same monitors. 60Hz


Could it be the monitors going bad, or do i need better ones? The AOC F22 has a response time of 5ms, as well as the Hanspree HSG1066. Would buying a monitor with a faster response time/refresh rate potentially fix the screen tearing? Happens with both V-sync and without on both monitors.

Screen tearing usually occurs under heavy load (gaming and things) or if the driver for the video card is not properly installed.

Also have you made sure that BOTH of the power connections on your video card are plugged in?

And that BOTH are connected to different power branches?

Yes, I am sure. Is it possible that I am just able to see when the frames are changing at 60Hz? I haven't tried any monitors over 60Hz, so idk if that would be possible.

if you are able to distinguish things as 60Hz then watching movies with any sort of motion at all must be hell...

 

it really sounds like a driver issue, having bad monitors would lead to other problems most likely, are the monitors connected with VGA/DVI/HDMI??

What are their resolutions?
