I'm thinking maybe your monitor, try checking the refresh rates on your monitor. If the refresh rates are not fast enough to keep up, I think that could cause it to flicker.

Just a guess;
Good Luck :?

Here are a couple of BIOS settings you might want to verify:

- Video BIOS Shadow and Video BIOS Cacheable - DISABLED
- C8000-CBFFFF Shadow and CC000-CFFFF - DISABLED
- AGP Aperture size - 64MB (256 MB if you have 512 MB RAM)
- AGP Turbo - DISABLED
- VGA Frame Buffer and Primary Frame Buffer - DISABLED
- PnP OS installed - YES
- Assign IRQ for VGA - ENABLED
- Resource Control - AUTO
- AGP Bus Mastering - ENABLED
- VGA Palette Snooping - DISABLED
- Disable any UCSW or Write Combine options in the CMOS
- Disable any manual configuration of PCI by setting these options to AUTO
- System BIOS Cacheable - DISABLED
- Video BIOS Mode Cache - UC
- Try lowering the AGP support (i.e. from AGP 8X to 4X).
- Disable Any Fast Write options
- Primary video or Init video - AGP

NOTE: These options may vary depending on the type/version of your system.

If it's a flickering, it's most likely your monitor refresh rate. Try to bump it up to 80 or so and see if the problem persists.

No its not the monitor and I bet its not a flicker! Is it a quick tearing of the graphic's like in the Sky and not a flicker of the whole screen is it?

If you have over clocked your card too much you will get this and its usually the memory overclocking and not the core so much. Its not really an Overheating issue though it maybe a slight factor. Under clocking may fix the problem but it can be physical permanent damage of the chips.
