  1. I experience tearing in World of Warcraft, and I dont know what settings need to be tweaked to stop this. My card is a BFG 6800 gt, i think, its a 6800 something, but i have tried messing with vertical sinc, that doesn't seem to help, am i missing something?

    I can play the game on mostly maxed out gfx no significant loss in framerate, but in major cities it will tear occaisionally, just enough to drive u crazy, not like siezure giving tears, just once every 3 seconds streaks across the screen

    edit, got drivers from nvidia site right away, so i should be up to date

    thanks for the help, just discovered my card is running at 67 celcius, which some guy told me is not good, and is causing overlapping textures, resulting in the slighty twitch in gameplay every 3 or 4 seconds, and the occasional tearing of textures. i have 3 case fans though, so i dunno, ill look into new heatsincs and everything if thats the problem.
