    If you're talking about tearing, that's a complex matter that depends on screen speed, sli/crossfire, windows version, dwm on/off, gpu cpl options like forced vsync, adaptive vsync etc.
    Running in windowed/borderless modes should normally not tear (except if on win7 + dwm off). If it does, than you must also get it in desktop moving windows around so it's not just a Dota issue.

    Some people reported stuttering while panning when they had vsync on - most likely a bug/conflict between dota vsync and gpu driver.
    That and the fact that ever since TI4 everybody (no exceptions) experiences framerate drops, made me force vsync off with my script.
    As of Nov4 version, Dota 2 best -fullscreen.lnk - has vsync on (it only makes sense for fullscreen mode), the other two generated shortcuts have it off. Just run each of them and find the one working best.
    To force vsync on or off for all modes, add mat_vsync "0" or mat_vsync "1" to autoexec.cfg

    That's an old WORK/OFFICE PC not even Windows7-ready X2 260 + HD 6450 + 6GB ram (odd number, it should be 2,4,8 for that system, you could try running with just 4GB) and nforce lan + via audio - no questions about it, it can't handle dota on anything but LOW-everything (with ~40-50fps not counting the drops everybody gets).

    Here's the thing: It is / was used to do actual work, and it's stuffed with programs for work like Visual Studio and other SDK's. Sure you don't get crash dumps since it's not clear what VC library it's used by the game (debug or retail). You can go way beyound a crash-dump since you have VS installed, you could do a live debug on dota. Overkill, since your OS looks like "clean reinstall"-level mess. If you only have one PC and have to do both gaming and working, you really need to keep the main OS clean for games, and virtualize the work part (another OS installation on a different partition, or vmware/virtualbox install).

    You might try getting rid of the worst AV invented and replace it with something like AVIRA, remove PunkBuster, DAEMON Tools, disable automatic starting for Garena, Kies, uTorrent, uninstall your video driver, driver clean it then update, and keep Chrome closed while playing / use Firefox. After that you should run the gamefixer.bat script again, and launch dota from the 3 new shortcuts (try the one named Dota 2 safe -nod3d9ex.lnk). A long shot.

    No matter how many words you use to describe it, it won't suffice. Post a crashdump, a List_my_programs.txt.
