    Edit - I'm sleepy and mispelled the title :)

    I'm not sure if its the Radeon 9600 Pro in my G5, or my LCD monitor... but I've never had problems w/ tearing in any 3-D games until I combined the two... I even get it with the Flurry 3-D screensaver. Does anyone have any advise on how to fix it? I know turning Vsync on in some 3-D games helps... but that's not exactly an option for my screensavers...

    Just curious, what are the specs of your monitor? I.E. pixel response rate, etc.

    There aren't any drivers for my card... I think the videocard is falling out of sync w/ my LCD... any advise?

    Okay, I've been playing around for awhile, and it seems that it only happens when its hooked up via DVI, and not VGA (through a DVI port w/ a converter).

    I tried Quake III on my PC with my other 172T Samsung, and it does the same thing.

    Is there a known tearing problem w/ DVI? Everything is just fine w/ VGA though :-/
