I get screen tearing in every game I play, especially noticeable on fortnite or csgo when I move my mouse a lot, doesn't seem to happen standing still, I am on 144hz and never noticed a single tear up until now, Also text/windows flicker and glitch out often, especially when changing settings in NVIDIA control panel or even sometimes when I download apps i'll get desktop and taskbar flickers regularly, shadows flicker in games as well.
V-Sync does not help.

I don't notice screen tearing in Heaven or Valley benchmark, only in games/videos/twitch streams, I often get errors on twitch where I have to refresh the page to watch the stream again.
I'm sending my gpu back this week but i'm not so sure it will solve the issues i'm having.
Worth noting i've rolled back drivers, used the newest drivers, even without drivers installed on my pc i still get screen tearing on videos ect.. I've reinstalled windows multiple times and nothing has fixed it yet.

Any clue if it could be a motherboard/psu issue?
