MOBO:gigabyte b75 d3v
1)I am planning to buy 7950.a tech frnd told me that if i buy it will give me tearing performace cause i have 1366*768 RES. with 60 fps or the gpu will send more fps than needed that will destroy gaming it true?he advice me to get 7850 2gb.
2)what if i set it 75hz?will still do prob?
3)Does powerful gpu more future proof?for example if 7850 protects 3 years of playing game smoothly than 7950 will protect 5 yrs,7990 will protects 7-8 years.M i right?
ABOUT ME:M a casual and normal gamer so not much hardcore about what i got in performance.i just want to play game smmothly that's it and want my gpu long run in time investment.
N:B: Sorry 4 my BAD ENGLISH.
I never seen any tearing or ripping with any resolution using a 7970 I recently switched monitors a few moths ago from a 22inch 1680/1050 to a 27 inch 1920/1080 never gave any issues it might be a GPU problem I also run CF honestly to me it is more of a bad GPU or driver issues

Nothing is overkill if you plan on using it again for another system as far as replacement protection some Vendors require you to register with them for that to even happen

some offer 3 years but the max I have seen and this would be by the brand Visiontek Lifetime protection but you have to make sure you pick up a card that has it written on there Box some has 3 some have 5 years on it so you have to make sure to keep your eyes peeled if you want to get the best protection

In the Video future proof is a myth all you can hope for at some point that the old parts you have are still usable honestly I don't know who even coined that term nothing is future proof not even yourself so that is just a ridiculous statement in general

I would go for the best choice for yourself and if you choose to get another monitor then that also will help you make a better choice you don't need a super packed GPU either if your not playing your games on ultra settings and multi monitors I switch monitors from time to time but only size wise not to get more resolution

OP is right (And other's) that screen tearing is caused by having more fps than your monitor's refresh rate. Basic solution is to force V-sync. But sometimes at a cost of mouse lag. It is trial & error really.

Good read > Screen tearing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I had screen tearing with DayZ (ArmA II mod) on my old Q6600 system but still had the GTX 560 i have now, and i had to force V-sync which did cause quite a bit of mouse lag. I happen to get my hands on a i7 CPU and funny enough i can now play DayZ with no V-sync and basically un-noticeble screen tearing. Work that one out... LOL

But like i said you just have to try with the games you play to see if V-sync causes any mouse lag. Most games run fine with V-sync on. It is just a very small amount. In older games i have always found that yes, you do get considerable amount of screen tearing (Quake 3, UT come to mind) but V-sync on sorted it and these older games didn't seem to be affected by mouse lag either.

I got the same problem as you Tayloring.
When im playing Diablo 3 or World of Tanks i get a bit some screen tearing. and have to force V sync, but then i get the mouse lag. its freaking annoying, so i just end up playing with the screen tearing. Ive also tried playing with V sync on Counter Strike Soruce ( not getting screen tearing there, did it just to test) and im getting the mouse lag there as well, no iead why

V-sync is the solution for all screen tearing, I suppose. You just turn it on and poof, tearing's gone. Go with 7950 if it's a one time investment.
