This started happening ONLY after I installed the drivers and it doesn't matter which drivers too. I installed the most recent, 1/2 a year ago ones and even 1 year old drivers and they still all make my screen do this. Eventually I removed the drivers and it'd stop tearing but then I can't use the GPU.
I think it might have to do with screen refresh rates. Any help/advice on this would be greatly appreciated.
Rig: AMD Phenom x4 Black Edition 3.2 Ghz
EVGA SuperClocked GTX 560

Monitor is @ 60Hz

No, can't. My computer is the most modern in the household. Also, forgot to add I'm using a DVI to HDMI connection between the monitor and GPU. HDMI in monitor and the other end goes through a converter to the GPU's DVI port.
