First up, help me to help you by filling out the system specs with everything you're using in your current rig.

It could be any number or combination of things that's causing the issue: could be the PCIe connectors, insufficient power, a connector missing, etc.

I took my system to the shop to have it tested and there wasn't any screen flickering with their monitor. Hence, they didn't replace it. But, when I came back to my place, I still see a bit of flickering in COD4 MP game but no more during boot up.

My monitor(View sonic 17 Inch LCD) works fine with my old gpu(Nvidia GT 220) but not with this new GPU.

I'm just having all issues since I purchased this new GPU. Really dishearted.

Turn Vsync on the game graphic options, and force it with the GPU's control center.

After a lot of playing around, on this seemed to work.

But still the question is, why screen flickers when vsync is off?

My monitor isn't that good?
