I didn't have to with the hd5870. I'm just wondering if I went up to a 1920 monitor with AA enabled and dropped from say 100+ to 70 fps if that would also cure it since my GPU wouldn't be spitting out twice as many fps as my refresh rate is at.
Screen tearing doesn't bother you with Vsync off? I can't stand it so I run with it on in every game, except for BFBC2, which for some reason doesn't seem to have tearing at all...or at least I don't notice it.

About $30 dollars. Every 480 on the planet can run at SC speeds as it's only 26mhz, which is nothing. I've also not seen any proof that the SC cards are specially binned or will overclock higher than any standard card either. Basically they are higher profit margin cards so Evga can make a bit more money.
