    In every game and opera browser I encounter tearing effect and little lags.
    In the past i had Nvidia 8800 gt and LG monitor W2242S, connected via VGA\DVI adapter.
    Now I have IPS LED 23EA63 and Nvidia 560 gt connected directly via DVI cabel and nothing changes, still tearing and lags in every game.
    Enabling Vsync solves tearing, but not the lags.

    Here is my config
    Nvidia Gigabyte 560 1GB (drivers 332.21)
    AMD FX-6300
    RAM Patriot 2x2GB
    MSI 970A-G43
    Codegen power supply PSU 600W
    Seagate Barracuda 2TB

    Please help.
    Should I buy AMD video card? Will it solve this problem?

    Screen tearing occurs when your computer (cpu and gpu) aren't putting out enough frames per second to match your monitor's refresh rate. So a 60hz monitor needs to produce a constant 60 fps in order to eliminate tearing in general.

    You can do several things to reduce tearing
    - overclock your cpu and gpu (properly)
    - upgrade your gpu, it's the bottleneck here in most scenarios. AMD or Nvidia are both great choices, but don't get ripped off :)
    - overclock your monitor (I think nvidia has built in support for this?), if possible... a monitor with a higher refresh rate 75hz even up to 144hz will significantly reduce tearing
    - easiest solution is to lower graphics settings to get higher fps

    basically find ways to improve your fps.

    I strongly suggest buying a decent psu,

    and what about little lags in every game? it is very annoyjing in for example Torchlight 2, Titan quest, Incredible adventures of Van Helsing and same games.

    I'm quite interested in this as mines started doing it a tad since I went from a 27" to 32" still running at 1080 though. I thought maybe I was just noticing the tearing more now but I never had brief lags before and I do now.

    I should also say I'm regularly 40fps+ rarely us bet it so I didn't really think about my gpu as the issue.

    Before you consider buying a new GPU. Go back to the basics.

    Set your bios to default, remove any overclocks you have on the CPU and also your GPU if you have any.

    The fact you get tearing in a web browser means something isnt right. Check your actual DVI cable. Also run an antivirus software program. I remember this happening to me and it turned out that a .exe file called rember.exe was causing my gpu to run at 70% even when idle so when I tried playing games on my 560 the card really was maxed out. Although it feels to me like a driver issue.

    Also update your bios and drivers.

    Lastly. I agree with the above post that your PSU should be upgraded.

    dude if that codegen 600 watt is the same one i just looked up it only has 20amps on the 12v rail and 37 on the 3.3 which is useless. I would replace that thing with something decent ASAP. I don't even know how it's even powering a 560ti plus fx6300 in game. Just because a psu says 600 watts doesn't really mean much you actually need to see what the power on the 12v rail is and if your not sure then just ask someone before buying another one.

    Screen tearing will happen with any FPS other than you monitors refresh rate or a multiple of it. (60Hz is 60, 30 and 15 FPS) At 40 FPS you have always had screen tear.

    It will still happen multiple it or not. It needs to be in sync with the monitor refresh. 60 frames per second at 60 Hz monitor does not mean that any frame is in sync with monitor refresh rate and thus tearing would occur.

    V-sync will solve it, v-sync and triple buffering will solve fps drops caused by double buffering.
