So...I recently bought this TV: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/lg-47-34-class-46-9-10-34-d...

Display looks great. I am running all my gaming systems including my PC on it. Only I've noticed that there is some screen tearing going on when my PC is connected to the TV. I am running my PC with a Radeon HD 5870. Can anybody give me some tips on how to get rid of the screen tearing? Its most noticeable when watching fast moving pictures (IE videos on netflix)

I suppose you are getting screen tearing when playing games. Just enable vsync in the game's video/graphic settings.

The Problem with tearing on dualmonitor-setups is the issue with the timing clocks on radeon cards.

You can use the 12.3 Catalyst driver , which hasnt got any Idle-Clocks.


The advantage is, tearing is gone. The disadvantage is that your card will be running at a steady 775/1000-mode even when your PC is idling -> more power consumption + higher temperature.
