    Default Aliasing, Flashing, Flicker Problem in Nearly all Games

    Hi,
    The problem is that on the edge of all objects there is a flashing, flickering problem. The objects have a pixelated feel to there edges also. I've mainly seen this problem in games like mass effect 1 and 2, but I've seen it in almost all games. Another problem related to this is in Skyrim, whenever I move the camera a black flicker would occur around textures such as bushes, plants and trees. The problem looks as if it's a aliasing problem, but I have aa turned on in every way possible. Here's a list of things I've tried:
    1. Fresh latest driver install
    2. Completely different motherboard, cpu and ram
    3. Fresh Windows Installation
    4. 9800gt Graphics Card
    5. Update every possible driver

    From my troubleshooting I've concluded that it's either psu, monitor or some thing I'm missing driver/bios/blunder wise.

    My System:
    Intel Core i7 2600k
    Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD5 mobo
    Corsair Dominator GT (2x2Gb)
    Gainward GTX 560 ti (1Gb)
    Coolermaster Silent Pro M850 PSU
    WD Caviar Black 1tb
    Benq V2420 Monitor

    I would appreciate any help or tips available

    Thanks

    I've tried it with no aa
    I'm using a 60hz refresh rate on the monitor, which is the highest available.

    seems strange for it to do it with two different gpu's,either a driver or monitor issue imo,did or can you test your monitor on another system to see if it still does it?

    I actually RMAed the monitor a few weeks ago because I felt as if it was the only thing it could be and when the new one arrived the problem was the same, so I thought it might not be able to run the games.
    Although this is unlikely, you can see where my frustration is coming from...

    Antialiasing-Mode=depends on the game-mostly application controlled
    Antialiasing-Transparency-depends on the game
    CUDS-GPUs-All
    Maximum pre-rendered frames-3
    Multi-display-Single
    Power management-Adaptive
    Texture filtering - Negative LOD bias-Clamp
    Texture filtering-Quality-High quality
    Threaded optimization-Auto
    Triple buffering-On
    Vertical sync-Use application setting

    Picture from any game that has the graphical problem. I have a hunch that the problem resides in driver setting...

    It's impossible to catch the problem with a screenshot.
    This is my video on youtube and if you watch it in 1080p you can see the problem

    Ok, have you tried the driver settings above?
    If you disregard the shimmering lights, which I think it's normal looking at your driver settings, I think your system is ok. Also the game has the latest patch installed?
