    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
