Solved

I am getting small, almost invisible lines on my monitor when I play games.

My monitor is IBM L200P, my GPU is AMD HD 7850 OC.
But I have, I don't know how you say it, adapter, or changer that I got, my GPU would not connect with my monitor if I didn't get it.
Is the adapter causing the white lines.

  1. Are the lines always in the same place on the monitor? When you hook the monitor up to a different computer, are the lines still there? If the answer to both questions is "yes", then the monitor might be the problem, otherwise, I'm thinking that your graphics card is "artifacting", a sign that there are problems with its ram.

    This lines go like in wave like formation.
    I dont have one cable, I got one cable from my monitor and an adapter in my GPU.
    No, no, I tried it at my old PC, no lines.
    Maybe it's the cable.
    If its the monitor, I can't do shit, since I spent all my money on the PC.

    Yeah, I got my VGA cable, and a DVI adapter.
    Should I just go to the store and get a DVI cable?

    Did you use the new cable to attach the monitor to your old PC? if so then the cable isn't the problem. If the only difference in how the monitor is attached to the different PC's is the adapter, then I submit that the adapter is the problem. Wavy lines is an indication of some kind of interference, and the adapter is the most likely source of that interference.
