I somehow think these 'lines' you are referring to is actually 'screen-tearing'. It happens when your videocard spews out more FPS (frames per second) than your monitor can cope with (factors are refresh-rate, and monitor response time). So its like while your monitor is halfway done drawing frame A, the gpu sends frame B, the monitor cancels drawing frame A and the unfinished image shift is what you see as a line. (this explains why you see the line when you turn/look quickly in CS and the like)

Try going into the options of the games in question and enable 'v-sync'.. this will force your graphics card to match your monitor's refresh rate
