I get screen tearing in a lot of games, and have even noticed it in some Youtube videos. I get it bad in Dishonored, to the point that I don't even want to play the game because of it.
I was just playing Spelunky here on Steam and seeing screen tearing in it. I've got a Q6600, not overclocked and 8gb ram. Not sure if it's because of my cpu or something else. Is there anything else I can do to stop the screen tearing? I run games etc in 1680x1050.
