  1. Screen tearing occurs when your frame rate is higher than your display's refresh rate. V-Sync forces the card to output a frame rate that matches the refresh rate. So when you get tearing just turn it on to fix the problem.
  2. I have v-sync turned on in the catalyst control center and I still get tearing. I dont think it works with all games, or even most.
  3. Woah, graphics card too powerfull for the task?? Confused!
