    With the a better computer, i am getting flickering and some color shifting with the same monitor i used with an older computer. My old computer ran 7800gtx's in SLI with no screen flicker at all with my dell 2005fpw widescreen LCD. With my new computer's 295 gtx's in SLI, i am noticing screen flicker using 60hz @ 1680x1050 (same res as old computer ran). On top of this, the colors seem to shift back and forth between a red/blue cycle. the color shifting is subtle and not super noticeable, but it is an annoyance when playing games nonetheless. this example may help: when looking at an orange background it may pulse between a darker orange and a grayish orange.

    any ideas on what could solve my flickering and color shifting problems? perhaps a new monitor with a higher refresh rate (although i don't believe there are LCD's with higher than 60hz rates)?
