Ok everyone in here I have something that may help you as it helped me.I actually found this problem because I was getting artifacting in games.What is happening here is that the Bios provided by Gigabyte has the idle clock far too low. It sits around 350Mhz this caused artifacting in games for me and it may be causing flickering for you. What I did was create a graphic preset in ATI. Then I went in and edited the graphics preset to set the idle clock at 500Mhz. Every once in a blue moon I get the artifacting but it is a rare occurrence. It blows my mind Gigabyte has not fixed this as I have seen so many people reporting and returning their cards because of it. When I get home I will try to upload a guide to fixing this. Rather simple solution.Note: This was not my solution I found it after hours of googling this problem I wish I could give credit to the person who found it.
