I'm currently on 6950: DVI-DVI + DVI-DVI + dp-vga so I only have the dp to vga adapter.
This does not have screentearing.

Will I start getting screen tearing with 7970 my 3x display only have 1 DVI and 1 VGA.
So I need to use the mini-dp adapters that come with Sapphire.

If you are using the same monitors with the 7970, you will not have any issues.

Monitor #1, DVI > DVI > 7970

Monitor #2, VGA > VGA-DP > DP-MiniDP > 7970 (included).

Monitor #3, DVI > DVI-Mini DP Active Adapter > 7970 (included).

same issues here.... sucks!

I'm currently on Sapphire 7970

DVI-DVI + miniDP-DVI + dp-DVI

I have screen tearing on all three monitors while gaming!

I have three New ACER 22" 60 hertz 1080p Monitors

From what I have read there is no fix for this??? Is that true? How can ATI think this ok?

If I go to 2 nivida cards will also happen?

I love this card so far but this tearing is driving me crazy in batman and Battlefield3

Screen tearing is on you to fix.
Certain graphics settings can cause tearing to get worse.
Try switching up some settings.

Also look into a frames per second limiter.
With BF3, I started at 75 fps. Once I limited my frames to 65 the tearing stopped.

I have tried everything!!!! I googled this for 3 hours last night and tried every sugg. out there! Everyone seems to think if they had 3 DVI ports on the card this would noe screen tear...

Who knows! ;o(

Pretty bummed about my $600 card

Using a limiter had zero effect?
Are you against using v-sync?

Try a frame limiter, or turn on Vsync if you can

the 7970 might be prone to more screen tearing on certain games as it will produce much higher fps then the 6950
Well infact 2x 6950 most of the time give more fps than this my only 7970.

So seems one 7970 might work fine.

Thanks, +rep given.

Once my watercooling is done I hope to try to run some games and test this out, however I don't see a reason why not Monitor #2 DVI > DVI - HDMI - HDMI cable - 7970
