So, im having this odd problem, my screen tends to flick on and off, its not constant and seems to happen randomly. Its like a split second, just one blink, so its hard to spot at times. Im worried there's a deeper issue.

My screen, is a Samsung 1080p full hd 32" TV, its plugged into my 7970. Not had any problems with my graphics as of yet. My PSU has a low amperage (24A) and multiple rails 12v1 and 12v2, its 650watt, but to me the amperage seems too low to handle my system. So yesterday i ordered a new PSU with 80+ silver standard, 850 watt, single rail with 70A.

What do you guys think?

Do you have anything else hooked to the TV to see if it's the TV or your PC like a digital cable box, PS3, XBox, etc or another monitor to try the PC with. I would have ruled out the TV first before I bought a new PSU.

I needed a new PSU anyway i want to overclock and this one isnt enough for what i want to do with my system. I have a PS3 ill give that a test.
