Gigabyte MA785GM-US2H Motherboard

AMD Phenom x4 9650 2.3
HIS ATI Radeon HD 5670
I Inc IH252 25" 1080 LCD Monitor
Currently running CCC 10.7, previously was using 10.6 same problem
Now heres my issue, when playing any game, i have this constant light flicker on the edges of objects. The graphics look great, and the edges are not jagged, there is just a light reflection/glare that as you move or the camera moves, it will scroll around.
This drives my eyes insane, i have a very hard time explaining it. It almost looks like jaggies, but its just light the lines are still crisp.
Its almost impossible to tell with this image unless you open it to the full 1920x1080 resolution, not sure if thats possible. This is bioshock 2, and the two red boxes, show the light jaggies.
Here on Batman Arkham Asylum this hand rail is a good example
It doesnt look so bad when sitting still, but when moving its aweful.
Im not sure if this is something simple like a AA/AF setting, or something similar. Or if its my monitor, I am running HDMI(MONITOR) to DVI(VIDEOCARD) but ive tried HDMI to HDMI no change.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I know I didn't explain very well, any tips on how i can better show my problem will also be appreciated.
No its in all games, Just Cause 2, WoW, Bioshock 2, Need for Speed Shift, Crysis, everything. What card would you recommend for a 1920x1080 resolution? as close to the same price range as possible. And do you know what my issue would be called?
I'm almost positive i have tried tweaking every CCC setting and every in game graphics setting, ive tried each notch for AA and AF, but with mipmap i have either High quality or high performance, high quality right?
Oh no the games look awesome, all settings are maxed and it runs great, high fps everything looks good, but i just have that light flicker problem on the edges.
Also have a problem with a stutter when i move the mouse, which is odd because its fine if im running with the keyboard but only when i move with the mouse, makes playing first person shooters really bad.
I'm tweaking CCC settings now to see if I can get the light problem to go away.
I changed the CCC AI to Advanced, and Mipmap to High quality, and it definitely helped with Batman almost completely removed the light flicker, but on WoW its severely worse...
The mouse stutter confuses me because its really only noticeable when i do slow mouse camera movements, thats what makes me think its not a performance issue, plus im never pushing more than 50% of my cpu
I returned my monitor and got a different one, its LED and has a much higher contrast ratio, that seemed to help with some of my lighting issues, but the stuttering camera when i move the mouse is still present, just got a different mouse/keyboard combo as well, didnt help
its an issue that would usually arise when using a low-dpi mouse at a high sensitivity setting.
msot people using a low end mouse would be fins with thw slow movement speed, but gamers usualtyl prefer much faster cursor speed. hence why we tend to go for high DPI mice. if you have turned up the sensitivity but are still using a low DPI mouse, that could explain the issue (though its not guaranteed to be the problem)
its the first thing i think of anyway.
i have my mouse at around 3000dpi most of the time. lowering to about 1500 for sniping and other slow tasks.
but it could be something else entirely. i can't think of anything else that would cause it though.
