@Dennis, is there much difference between the earlier 2000 gpus and the newer ones?

I was able to get my hands on a nvidia 660ti-it seems like the higher fps permits much less tearing to occur, but it still does occur. The monitor's refresh rate is 59 hertz not the standard 60. That's probably the issue.

Swapping the ports didn't help.

Power supply has 550W with a 12 V rail. How would I check if the memory is overheating? The case is pretty cool whenever I feel it.

The system in question currently has a dual monitor setup. The other monitor shows now issues, but it has very low resolution, 1440x900.

@techie007, with flash, only in full screen mode; in games most resolutions.

@slhck, I wasn't actually using cut--I was trying to formulate some complex command. Should have gone with my actual command.

Whereas my ls pipe took less than 10 chars :)
