    hey so i have no other computer within this state to figure out which is messed up, i have a new 5770 that replaced my old 4870(it was artifacting pretty badly...and still dealing with saphire over getting a new one (6 months after i started process D:)) but this new 5770 has it's own problem going on, it's kinda making a ripple effect on my display, and i figure it's most likely a monitor or gpu problem... it only seems to get bad when i'm in a 3d app, or when i have to switch between 3d and 2d often. i contacted xfx about it and they replied along the lines of and i quote "not my problem." so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance,
    JKL

    d-sub to vga connector yes, it's a 1080p lcd monitor i bought back when the 9800gt was still considered more then a paperweight. it's not done this through 4 graphics cards, but if u know something please any help is appreciated and i'm always wanting to learn more.

    system specs:
    phenom II 965 quad core oc'd to 3.9ghz (currently underclocked as someone suggested that might be the problem
    4gb ddr3 1600 ram 6-6-6-19 (currently underclocked as someone suggested that might be the problem running it at a rediculously easy 1200mhz 11-11-11-28)

    CHIII formula mobo
    AOC vga monitor 22" 1080p

    I've heard of flickering with VGA before, one of my friends has a 4870 that does it badly on VGA, but has no problems with DVI. Try DVI or HDMI on something else if you can.
