Sorry for more questions but the more info you give. the easier it will be for anyone to help.
Is it only the second monitor thats flickering?
Have you tried the second monitor on its own to make sure its not the monitor at fault?
How are the monitors connected? VGA /Dvi cable, adapter?
when you changed the card did you uninstall the old Nvidia drivers?
