Im from Bulgaria, so sorry if my English sucks
I'd like to ask you something in particular:
I have a GeForce 8800 GT Video Card with 2 DVI connectors and one.. HDTV I think.
I bought a new Samsung B2230n 22" monitor, full HD, 60Hz. To which I was misled that it has a DVI input, but it doesn't - it only has a VGA. My old monitor was also VGA so I had an adapter and it worked just fine. But with the new one - there is a particular flickering which is really annoying especially for a brand new monitor.
The problem I think is really this adapter, cos a I tried my new monitor on an another computer where the connection was VGA to VGA and it was fluent.
So what should I do? Buy another adapter in hope of being a better one, or should I buy a new video card, which I wouldn't like doing cos this one is pretty good.
Replacing the DVI to VGA adapter would be the least expensive option.
Though, you may have an issue with the new monitor. Does the adapter still work just fine with your old monitor? Can you try it again? Or does it flicker with your old monitor?

It doesn't flicker with my old monitor, but it is really old and the resolution was 1280x 1024. I guess there is a difference?
The monitor I tried with VGA to VGA and it worked perfectly. So I think it's not the monitor, it's the connection
The nvida driver has a bad habit of setting crazy refresh rates. I have a 9800gt in my HTPC and the driver was pushing the 46inch TV at 75 Hz, when the TV is rated for 60. I manually set it to 60 picture got 100% better.
