GeForce GTX 460 -> Diablo 3 -> Screen tearing Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Product Last response: December 11, 2012 2:31 PM in Graphics & Displays Share fantanel December 11, 2012 5:07:30 AM Hello, my PC has the following specs: CPU:Intel i3 2120 3.30GHz MOBO:Intel DZ68DB GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 460 SE Cyclone OC 1GB DDR5 256-bit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... RAM: Corsair 8GB DDR3 1333MHz CL9 XMS3 Storage: SSD Corsair Force Series 3 60GB & WD 500GB SATA-II 7200RPM PSU: Antec EarthWatts 500W Using the latest NVIDIA drivers, I sometime get AWFUL screen tearing while playing Diablo3. It occurs always in the same areas, where there are Stairs and objects on more than one plane / level. I have tried using older drivers, turining on-off the V-Sync and AA, some settings in the NVIDIA coltrol pannel like "optimize for 1 screen / best performance" but I`m out of ideas. Hoping you guys/gals have some useful tips for me, or any solution except "buy a new card!". Thank you.

I set it to Adaptive and I will reply here if the problem is solved or not. thx. GNCD December 11, 2012 2:14:46 PM Let me guess. Screen tearing occurs in the snowy areas of act 3. I have the same problem and it only appeared after the MP patch. fantanel December 11, 2012 2:31:17 PM problem seams fixed, but now it`s 'laggy' somehow, I can`t place my finger on it, it`s like not all the screen refreshes at the same time. Should I enable in-game Vsync / AA / frame limiter? @GNCD yes in the snowy areas and before the siege engine where the stairs are... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
