I use following solution (from the manjaro wiki) with my GTX660

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
insert the following

Code: Select all

# >>>> The following line solved display tearing on my GTX 660 Ti:
    Option         "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0 { ForceFullCompositionPipeline = On }"
in the screen section to make it look like this

Code: Select all

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Device0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
# >>>> The following line solved display tearing on my GTX 660 Ti:
    Option         "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0 { ForceFullCompositionPipeline = On }"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
    EndSubSection
EndSection
no guarantee as your card is different but give it a try.
