I've got all my parts now for my first HTPC, very excited, and I've done tons of research everywhere. However I have this question as it pertains to my particular setup and the release of ATI's 10.2 Catalyst drivers.


First my setup:

Case: Moneual 312

MB: Gigabyte GA-H55M-USB8 (microatx)

CPU: Intel core i3 530

VID: Radeon HD 5450

TV: SONY XBR4 52" 120Hz LCD


QUESTION IS: Will I still have to worry about screen tearing while watching 24fps content, 23.976fps movies, or 30fps TV captures to mkv... stuff like that?


The release notes of the CCC 10.2 drivers say 120Hz for all resolutions so.. will I still need displaychanger to change my refresh rate to prevent judder? Will I still need Reclock to get all my components on the same page timing wise?


Any clarification or advice is appreciated.

Tha majority of 120Hz 240Hz and 480Hz TVs do not take 120Hz input


But my understanding is that the newer 3D LCDs and etc will (correct me if I am wrong)

Wow, well you learn something every day. I never questioned the 120Hz, I guess it's just marketing this whole time. I wonder what that represents...


Okay so what renderer should be used to avoid tearing, and once again is Reclock a part smooth visual playback ?


Thanks for feedback,
