Unhappy Can't get rid of tearing; videos unwatchable

Instead of making a new post just changed this one.

Well I'm pretty ticked, I'm using 169.09 drivers and an 8800GT, and any video I play be it in VLC, Xine, Mplayer, etc. all have tearing, and in nvidia-settings checking synctoblank does absolutely nothing. It did with my 7600GS on my old box, but not now.

There has to be a way to fix this, or I will have to return this card as I primarily use my box to watch shows/movies.

My xorg.conf:

# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings:  version 1.0  (buildmeister@builder3)  Fri Jan 11 15:06:57 PST 2008

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig:  version 1.0  (buildmeister@builder3)  Fri Jan 11 15:05:59 PST 2008
