Screen Flicker Issue

Hey All,

I recently (last month) built my first machine. I asked around to compile a list of parts that would be compatible, ordered them, and built away. I took quite a while for me to finally get everything together, drivers updated, etc. etc.

What I'm running: (If you need any more specific details please let me know)
- Windows 7 - 64 bit
- ASUS P7P55D-E LX Intel P55 mobo
- Intel i5 x4 @ 2.67GHz
- 4GB ram
- HIS Radeon HD 5870
- 650 Watt PSU
- 23" ASUS HDMI Widescreen Monitor
- 19" Dell monitor (older)


Basically, I have one last issue - my screens "flicker", apparently when the machine is under a load (it's mostly fine when I'm just browsing the internet and stuff; however, when I play a game, WoW or Heroes of Newerth, it flickers). It's not frequent enough to make it unplayable or unusable, but it is extremely annoying.

- I have updated all my drivers(I believe)
- Updated BIOS this morning
- Looked at temps in BIOS, they appear to be fine; although, my graphics card doesn't seem to be listed.

I have no idea where to go from here. My experience is pretty limited. I appreciate any help, thanks in advance!

What are you temps under load, and what brand PSU is that?

What monitor cable are you using? If you are using DVI, try the other DVI port.

I have had this issue also....It was the drivers. Make sure that you have the latest ones and if you do try the next ones back

The problem has been persistent through all of the drivers that I've had (3).

Are you using 10.8, if so try 10.4 (they seem to be the most stable). If you are not using 10.8, try 10.8 first.
