Try the Next things:

1: When the screen starts flickering, disconnect the pwr cable of the screen, wait for 10s' and plug it back see if it makes the flickering stop = Screen is faulty.

2. If Num' 1 didnt work:
* Disconnect the pwr cable and the monitor from the 550ti.
* Press the pwr button to empty all the voltage left in the PSU.
* Remove your GPU from your PC.
* Connect the monitor into the mobo DVI/HDMI/VGA port and connect the pwr cable aswell. = If no flickering accures then its a foulty GPU.

Most likely this will solve it But if it wount pls tell me so we'll try the PSU and more .

Anyway any Update will be great
