Hi all.

Just finished a new build with a (Sapphire) Radeon 6950 1GB.

I'm having huge screen tearing issues both watching video and even moving windows around the desktop. So far, my old GeForce 8500GT coped better than the Radeon does!

I've installed the catalyst drivers, but I'm unable to turn on the tear-free option in the catalyst control center. No idea why, but every time I open the program it's set to 'disabled'. So I enable it and restartx. And it's disabled. So I enable it and restartx. You see where I'm going here?

Can anyone help, please?

Thanks,
edooze

Nobody? I've tried replacing the xorg.conf file numerous times with the aticonfig --initial command, and still nothing. Is there even a fix for this issue? Maybe I have to go back to GNOME... :(
