    I don't know what the problem is called... but you can see in the image attached.

    I bought Radeon HD 7870 Sapphire OC Edition 2GB some time ago. First it gave me the famous restart problem. I solved it by changing my PSU. Easy stuff. But since then it's given me another problem: artefacts or screen tearing or flickering... I don't even know what's this.

    At first I thought the problem was from the screen. It was not, I tested it with another screen and same problem happened. Then, the graphics card. It's not, I changed from a 7870 to a 7850 and the problem remains. What can I do? Help me please.

    what driver version did you use ?

    if you use 14.6, then go back to older drivers, either 13.12 or the 14.x drivers before 14.6.

    because this also happens to me, but only on 14.6.

    Hi, did what you said. I'm using 14.4 instead of 14.6 and so far so good with the 7850. Skyrim, Saints Row and Witcher working perfectly. Football Manager working as well too. Later I'll try with 7870 and post the results. Thank you!

    Meanwhile I'd appreciate more answers and further options/opinions around the forum.
