I have an amd build and have really bad luck with getting linux to run on it.

I had some luck installing manjaro 2 years ago but it had terrible screen tearing so I ended up removing it (both proprietary and free video drivers, had 0 effect). From then on I cannot find any distro which would let me login on a live cd (the distros would freak out (screen tear or freeze)). Any ideas how I could alleviate the pain? (my specs fx8350 r9 390x 16gb ram ddr3 2 monitors).

I have a few other computers with linux installed (arch, manjaro, centos) and they all work like a charm (but all of them are not custom built).
