Hey guys, I'm at my wits end. Since upgrading my graphics card 2 years ago I have been getting a single screen tear line about 3/4 of the way up the screen when playing games and watching YouTube. I have searched forums all over the place and have not been able to resolve the issue. The problem only occurred after I upgraded my graphics card.

My hardware set up is:
Gpu: Gigabyte GTX950
Monitor: Asus VH238
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

And my current Nvidia settings are:
Ambient Occlusion -- Off
Anisotropic filtering -- Application-controlled
Antialiasing - FXAA -- On
Antialiasing - Gamma correction -- On
Antialiasing - Mode -- Application-controlled
Antialiasing - Setting -- Application-controlled
Antialiasing - Transparency -- 8x (supersample)
CUDA - GPUs -- All
DSR - Factors -- Off
DSR - Smoothness -- Off
Maximum pre-rendered frames -- Use the 3D application setting
Multi-Frame Sampled AA (MFAA) -- On
OpenGL rendering GPU -- Auto-select
Power management mode -- Optimal power
Shader Cache -- On
Texture filtering - Anisotropic sample optimization -- Off
Texture filtering - Negative LOD bias -- Clamp
Texture filtering - Quality -- Quality
Texture filtering - Trilinear optimization -- Off
Threaded optimization -- Auto
Triple buffering -- On
Vertical sync -- On
Virtual Reality pre-rendered frames -- 1

Any support you could provide me would be greatly appreciated. It's driving me mad.

Was the graphics brand new when purchased or second hand?

Have you ever downloaded MSI Afterburner or similar overclocking software to experiment with?

I also have pretty basic knowledge but it's a shame you didnt take it back to the retailer under warranty as it could be a hardware fault, sometimes graphics cards have these problems.

I recommend downloading MSI Afterburner and possible downclocking you graphics cards Core Clock by 50 to 150 mHz and seeing if that changes anything. While it makes performance a little worse it might fix the problem...

You could also increase the Power Limit and Temperature limit to see if that yields any change..
