I'm running bf3 for the first few times and I my screen starts flickering mid game. If I go in the menu and come back to the game the menu is on screen while it flickers.

My specs are

i5-3570k
z77a-gd65
gigabyte gtx 670
g skills 8gb 2400mhz
sandisk 240gb ssd
running stock not overclocked

Check your temps etc.

Need to know your PSU. Most important part so don't leave that off your specs

the only other thing I would suggest is to remove all Nvidia and AMD (if you've had in the past) drivers, re-download from the inner-webs and re-install see if that helps. Sometimes even if you do have the most current drivers they do not install correctly.

You may also want to check you're DVI/HDMI cable.

This is a new build so the first driver loaded was the most current and I'm running dvi d cable, I don't have this problem with any other game. I'm running on high settings and still get it, this system should be able to run bf3 on ultra.

yeah, you're right; I don't see anything in your specs that would hinder BF3 performance on ultra..... maybe reinstall the game or repair it, I'm assuming your running the game through origin?
