Well AMD drivers do suck.

Vsync is a graphics option you'll find in the CCC (Catalyst Control Center) and in your game menu. Go to your game options and see if Vsync is turned on. If it isn't then turn it on and see if that helps.

The only other thing it can be is an instability issue.

how do i find out if it is a stability problem if had the computer run prim95 and it ran that fine. so how else can i check the only think i could think of is 2 of the monitors ar using dvi and 1 is display port. changing them all to display port could that fix this problem

No it isn't the connection. Did you try Vsync? That kind of screen tearing is usually caused by high resolutions or high amounts of AA which Vsync fixes.

Only other option is test GPU by using Furmark.
