About a week ago, I took out my GTX-670 in order to De-Dust the damn thing. As soon as I put it back in, my damn NVidia control panel lost it's short term memory. Every time I start a game (any game) I have to restore to original settings and then turn triple buffering ON as well as turn V-sync onto adaptive.
IF I DON'T DO THIS: the framerate for the game will be locked at 60 (great... perfect) BUT there is screen tearing. And lots of it. And yes I have tried turning v-sync off in game as well as on.
If I turn my computer off, I have to redo the settings. If I close one game and open another, bam. Change the settings back to triple buffering on and v-sync to adaptive. If there settings are on anything else. Screen tearing up the ass.
