Pre-Built PC: Yes, Dell Inspiron 570
Motherboard: Dell 04GJJT A00
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 245, 2.9 ghz
RAM: 8 GB, Corsair, 2 sticks x 4 GB each, DDR3 SDRAM 12800. Just installed today. Was also having same screen tearing issues with the original ram - 4 sticks x 1 GB each, DDR3 SDRAM.
Video Card: Radeon HD 5670, 1 GB, not overclocked.
PSU: Original one from Dell, 300w. Yes, I realize this video card requests a bigger PSU but in reality the card doesn't even get close to 300w usage.
Monitor: ASUS 23", VH236H
Hard Drive: 500GB, 7200 RPM
Optical Drive: 16x dvd/rw
Additional PCI Cards: None
Number of Fans present: 1
Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit
Video Card Drivers in use (and tried): Currently trying sample of 12.1, have tried 11.12, 11.11, 11.10, 11.9 to no avail, only 11.2 seems to work.
Apps/Games causing issues: Everything. Just sitting on the desktop it tears. Load a website and tearing increases.
XFX suggests to use the newest verified drivers - 11.12. Their website was downloading it slow so I went and got the drivers directly from the AMD website.
