Full Screen Games Isseues

I'm here because I've a problem with my MSI GeForce GTX 660.
When I play any game at full screen I get a problem that I can't describe.
Basically while I play for example Battlefield 3, when I move the view around, the screen is like divided in orizontal chunks and they are not synchronized.
I made a video with my phone:

This happens only when I play in 1080p full-screen mode, either in low or in ultra.
But it doesn't happen if I play in 1080p windowed mode with ultra settings.

Can anyone help me, please? It would be very much appreciated.

  1. Intel core i5 2500k @ 3.3Ghz
    MSI GeForce GTX 660 Twin Frozr III 2GB OC
    Gigabyte Z68P-DS3
  2. Its called vertical tearing, and it happens regardless of your setup or game. It happens because your graphics card draws a frame in the middle of the monitor refreshing, so theres a hiccup when the next one is displayed.

    Only way to get rid of it is to turn on vsync, which induces massive input lag.

    This is due to the gpu?
