Just installed a GTX 670, noticing some flickering on certain games. Is there a way to check to see if it is getting the necessary amount of power?

There is no real way to check, what is the power supply you are using?

I'm not sure of the brand of the power supply. Not sure of the reliability or anything else. You are probably going to need to either try the card in a new power supply or a friend's computer.

Like I said, I'm not sure of the reliability. What are some of the games you play?

I am currently playing Diablo 3 and Max Payne 3. It is most noticeable in Diablo 3. It is quite subtle and can fluctuate a bit.

Is that power supply powerful enough to power the graphics card?

Not all power supplies are made the same. Just like cars. Some are better that others
