hd radeon 6670 screen flicker

I have purchased a midrange pc with following specification
processor AMD fx 6300 black edition
Mother board :- Asus M5 A97 R2.0
HDD 500GB
PCU coolmaster 450w
Graphics card amd radon hd 6670 2gb ddr3 by Asus
OS windows 7 64 bit
ACer lcd monitor with 1600 x900 res 60hz

Initially i was not having any problem ( i have not noticed any problem to be precise) I was able to over clock the gpu with the gpu tweak provided by the asus
but problem started when i installed the flash player in my system i when i am watching youtube video the screen flickers when switching from one video to other . Also the screen flicker after watching a HD video in my system it will not flicker while i am watching it will flicker only after closing the video . now when i try to over clock the gpu using the gpu tweak the screen starts flickering continuously ( there is a power saving profile and gaming profile already stored in the gpu tweak ) selecting both these profile make the monitor flicker continuously. When i tried to play Battle field 3 the screen stared flickering badly i was hardly able to see the menu item and the intro cut seen. I have contacted the pc vendor and they took my graphic card and temporaly given a Asus nvida 210 which works perfectly with the over clocking or with flash . Today i got the new graphic card and still there is the flicker problem. please guide me .

    with basic setting with out changing any thing in gpu tweaks , I am getting screen flicker when watching youtube video (that i could bypass by checking disable hardware acceleration in youtube video option ) and i am getting the flicker when i am watching hd video in my system and when i play battle filed 3 i am hardly able to select the menu item form the battle field 3
  3. That flickering with you tube video might have something to do with flash hence disabling hardware acceleration solved the problem. Flash player always brings issue whenever new version comes out. And those problem usually affect both nvidia and amd cards.

    Anyway have you tried playing your videos using different video player software? Also does other game also have flickering like you got in bf3? Lastly have you tried using different drivers?

    I have tired to update the bio and ati catlyst and still there is problem and had tried it with a different graphics card nvidia and there was no problem working and since one month i am behind this issue so today i have spoke with the shop and they have agreed to replayce me with a Asus gtx 650 e graphics card , It is having some what similar price tag and spec
    so i am going for it , had enough with Radon , I was hoping that the AMD will fix the bug one took over the ATI after searching enough i found that this flicker issue is a problem with ati and there is no permanent fix yet .

    First i thought i might it might caused by unstable oced or bugs with certain driver version. Afaik the 7k series also have flickering problem playing dx9 games. Dx10 and 11are fine but for games that only available in dx9 only it was problematic. Anyway that gtx650 should be faster than 6670. In fact it perform in the same range as amd 7750.
