i dont notice it as much during video playback in WMP, although i think it does sometimes.. it is most prevalent in SC2 during the campaign cut scenes

i'll try without ITC and see if anything changes

Make sure you uninstall any codec pack you installed and check back your cutscenes.

Is this only happening in FULL SCREEN mode?

Been tested in Windowed mode in that case?

Test in windowed mode please. 8)

V-sync is suspect, isn't likely used in Windowed mode...

huh, in windowed (fullscreeen) mode it did not tear! is the solution to just always play in windowed mode if possible?

Turn off V-Sync within the game and see if it goes away, I play all games in Windowed mode if possible, most of my late releases have a max screen space, but windowed mode available.

I prefer to be able to switch out to other things easily.

I have two monitors.... I keep game on one and surfing on the other, annoyed when games only play in full screen.

What V-sync does is force the game to run at the frame rate native to the monitor, likely 60 FPS, and probably what is happening is your video card can't handle that much constantly at the game settings you are using...

Without V-Sync on your video card will do it's highest FPS it can, in my case, I use fraps to monitor frame rates, it's free for that purpose, I paid for it so I could record with full sound, any way with V-Sync off some games like Painkiller (my favorite FPS) made several years ago, I am seeing 250+ FPS, which is of course overkill and raises the video card temp way up, so in that case V-Sync is desirable.

If the monitor communication speed (response time) was higher than 8ms, I suppose that too would wreck havoc on gaming, just something else to consider.

vertical sync was off in full screen mode when it tore... the option says it "Synchronizes your frame rate to some fraction of your monitors refresh rate."

maybe I want that on?

Yup you should turn V-Sync on, that should cure tearing.

AH, there u go, it was opposite for that game, ugh, probably will run that game at best FPS in your range, which is fine, would have gotten there sooner, but on my end sevenforums was suddenly unreachable.

If you spend a lot more you can get a native 120Mhz monitor.
