Crossfire 6950 issues and screen tearing need help

So i just recently installed a 2nd 6950 into my system, before i added it i didnt have any issues but after i added it ive noticed that the screen is tearing and kind of looks like it does when you have a bad coaxial connection on a TV. I have used 2 different DVI cables and nothing changes.

My monitor resolution is 1600x900. Is it that the 2 cards are just too beast for that resolution or could it be the Crossfire Bridge.

Any help would be appreciated

If you see a screen tear effect, try to enable vsync in CCC and your games.

A forum member has captured it in the past

Is this the issue you get, almost like part of the screen is a frame ahead?

If it's like the above, that is tearing. The reason you see it now and not before is that with higher FPS, you are more likely and at high enough FPS guaranteed to get tearing. And like the poster above, v-sync is your only option to stop it.

The reality is, you might have more horsepower than you need for that resolution.

That is a serious graphic solution for 1600x900, you could buy two 24" 1080P Monitors and still get ridiculous frames on both screens lol. I would think that the CF setup is tearing because of the low resolution. But similar to above try to turn Vsync on and that should help, if not buy a newer monitor your eyes will thank you for it later.

Lol yea, it is kinda redonk for 1600x900. i was like i wanna play BF3 on max, well i can but now its kind of aggervating. So do yall think a good 1920x1080 120hz monitor would be ok for this solution?

Ya, I personally like it a lot for that, but I still recommend v-sync.

BF3 will look amazing on a 120hz 1080P screen.
