Any friends or family members have a spare monitor or cable you could test it on? That way you don't have to waste money at a computer shop if you're capable of fixing it yourself (plus you'll learn something ).

Well, I'm a pleb when it comes to computers and Bosnia is not so advanced + my family members are far away in the city.

They came back, they could not fix the problem, I turn of anti aliasing and the problem stops.
BTW, what is anti aliasing?

AA is basically getting rid of jagged lines on surfaces that are supposed to be smooth/rounded.

Just leave it off. Seems like what you're experiencing could be a form of tearing. If you want AA turn it on in the game menu rather than forcing it.

But will it make them game uglier?
And what is triple buffering?

Editing any of those settings tries to force AA and you'll have issues running games that weren't designed to run with AA. On other games it won't do anything.

I gotta run, so read here.
AnandTech | Triple Buffering: Why We Love It

It helps with problems with Vsync but it can cause tearing issues, input lag, or eat up your VRAM. Basically I would leave it off.
