Default XFX R9 280x rapid faded lines while gaming

Hey everyone,

My specs-

Windows 8.1 64-bit

i5-2310 2.90GHz

XFX R9 280x

8GB RAM

750W Corsair PSU

I just picked up a new GPU, the XFX R9 280x. I've been getting problems with moving lines on my screen.. They are very faded, but very noticeable. The only time I get it is when I'm playing SWTOR. I have vertical sync on in the game and in the settings of my GPU. I tinkered with turning OpenGL Triple Buffering on, still doesn't help. I tried messing with those two settings, turning them on and off, nothing would work. As I said earlier, I don't have any problems when I'm just browsing the Internet or anything on my Desktop. I made sure the power connectors were in and made sure it was placed securely. It runs like a champ, but the lines are killing me. I have no idea what to check next.

Thanks!!

Does it do this on any other game? It sounds like screen tearing to me.
