Nvidia GTX 760 issue with screen tearing

Hey guys,

So on WednesdayI picked up my computer and installed all the drivers and what not and played some games on Wednesday night, had some screen tearing but I fixed that in game by turning the FPS down.

Then on Thursday I had screen tearing all over the place. I did a fresh install and installed the Nvidia drivers and there was screen tearing when I opened programs, not on the desktop though. When I was browsing Youtube and Facebook for example, there was screen tearing.

Here is a link of a screenshot of what I am talking about. http://imgur.com/JR36frQ&Z4o0NSU

My specs for the system are:
i5 Core 4670
Gigabyte H87M D3H mobo
Gigabyte GV-N760OC-2GD GTX 760 OC EDITION PCI-E 3.0 2GB
Asus VS248H 24", LED, 2ms, 1920x1080, 250nits HDMI , D-Sub, DVI-D

What are your thoughts on what this is? I currently have the Nvidia drivers uninstalled there is no tearing, so I'm guessing its a faulty card but I am pretty noob with computers so would love a second opinion.

Best solution

Oh boy, that is not screen tearing. If you are sure you uninstalled drivers correctly (not by clicking uninstall, you need to Google a guide) and did a clean install the right way, you have a faulty graphics card and need to get it replaced quickly before your warranty or whatever runs out. That is never a good thing to see from a video card, I saw that once and after doing a few driver wipes it went away, but its not fun stuff.

That isn't screen tearing in your link. Those are artifacts. Usually a result of a faulty card.
Screen tearing is result of frame rate vs monitor refresh rate. In NCP you would set vert sync to "adaptive" to eliminate screen tearing with minimal fps loss. But those pics aren't screen tearing.

Btw, how did you turn down fps?

Oh, its not screen tearing? The more you know! I'm a 100% sure I uninstalled the drivers correctly. I am returning the GPU on Monday to exchange it. Thanks guys for the help.

@clutchc In CS:GO I just used console and typed in fps_max_ and then whatever FPS I did.
