So I got a new custom computer at Christmas.All was working well, graphics were great and the performance was amazing.But two days ago I updated to Windows 8 and I did not like it so I re-installed Windows 7.I had to re-install all my drivers.So I lost my Graphics Card's driver CD ( AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series ) so I went on the AMD website and downloaded my driver updates.So then I loaded up a couple of PC games and notice that I am getting a lot of screen tearing.I went into Catalyst Control Center and enabled Vsync and OpenGL triple buffering, the screen tearing has calmed down alot but it is still there.I also have this software that helps stop it (Virtu MVP) but it does not seem to be working.
Any help is appreciated guys.

are you sure you got the 32-bit or 64-bit drivers? (find out what type of OS u have and get the correct bit drivers) Also, find out the exact model GPU it is and get the drivers for that. (is it a 7750? 7770? what?)

as a side note, ur RAM is slow, you should think about upgrading it in the near future to 2 x 4GB 1600MHz (in dual-channel config) but everything else about ur rig is good.

Oh, and have you installed the drivers for your motherboard? Not having the chipset's manufacturers drivers could cause issues in performance.

It does not show my exact model for some reason.
