Done the driver fresh install etc, I have Radeon Pro I set as:
Triple Buffering - Tick
Display refresh rate 60 Hz
V sync Control - Always on (Double V sync)
Dynamic Framerate control - Keep up to 59 Fps
(Feels like radeon pro does nothing but just sit in my system tray)
CCC Set to defaults so not to interfere with Radeon Pro
But I run Starcraft 2 and disable the V Sync in game and I get screen tearing, am I supposed to have v sync enabled in game and radeon pro? because ive tried both and it still stutters, Also I have tried graphics on minimum and it stutters, it really feels like a V-sync problem. Its when I move around the map with the arrows that the game stutters, the units etc are fine unless im moving the screen around. (a steady 60 fps)
Its like that with Far Cry 3 too, when you start running around or driving its stuttering, but if you just stand there looking around you don't get it, I really can't play my games without V sync as it just looks awful. But im realy not sure what to do next.
My old Nvidia 460's never did this but obviously I needed an upgrade thinking this 7970 would be fine, I have also heard the 680's stutter. But ive not really seen anyone with a single 7970 stutter, I google it and its always forums talking about 7970 Crossfire stutter.
Man this really blows, I appreciate all your help guys, and if you have any more advice it is more than welcome!
