Hello, I'll list my current setup so you can see what I have. Last night I was playing a custom map a tower defense and I was experiencing some screen tearing when I went over a certain portion of the map. I do have adaptive VSync turned on so I don't know if that may be the issue. I tried taking a snapshot but when I did a print screen I ended up with a black screen I remember I had to do something to change that with another game I have I think it was windows background or something either way I normally take screen shots with fraps. Any help would be awesome I got some weird troubleshooting with gigabyte they asked me to change slots I'm unsure why this 400 dollar card wouldnt be able to run at its full 16x and the also asked me to to try it on another system oye! I don't have another system that would support it. They also said it would take 2-3 weeks of turn around to get a card RMA'd and returned and I would like to avoid this if all possible. I updated my bios this morning so that may fix it on my motherboard I'm unsure.
