    Jesus, anything lower than 85Hz makes my monitor vibrate enough to cause serious illness.. 85Hz is the standard on new not to fancy monitors..

    Well, on his on setup he had same specs apart from an old monitor and a GF2 MX400, and it still flickered, when he got new monitor and graphic card just a month ago it still flickers, and it's constant as well, not like once every 1hr, it's every 2minutes.
    So I'm jumping towards PSU, mobo or RAM.
    Ill try the refresh rate when I'm at his house this weekend.

    BTW, when I mean flicker I mean the whole screen goes off then on again.

    Often times Monitor flickering/vibrating/ect. can be caused by power lines in the walls and such. try moving the monitor and cables farther way from the wall or a different location all-together and see if the problem still persists.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    If possible, hook the monitor up to another system and see how it behaves. That will assist with figuring out if the monitor is the problem or the vid card.

    I run my CRT 19" Dell Monitor at 1024x768 at 100Hz (higher rez's make everything look the wrong size to me), but at 60hz, I can see it refresh, sometimes even at 70hz. As a rule of thumb, you should run your monitor at its highest refresh rate (providing it works correctly) to ease eye strain: just because it looks alright doesnt mean your eyes arent picking up the refresh subconciously, and they still can get hurt :( . In your case Dragon Boy, check the refresh rates and the connections (from the comp to the monitor wire and the the monitor wire to the monitor). Try moving the wires around in the back and have your friend watch the screen, if he notices any improvement, fool around with the wires so that the monitor stays in its improved state. Check the monitor drivers and DX just to make sure, but this sounds more like a hardware problem. If the problem persists, return it before its too late, and maybe the new one will work for him :thumb:. Good luck! : peace2: Mista K6

    Any idea why the image on the screen would get ugly and vibrate at any refresh rate over 60?

    This isn't some cheap monitor...it's a Sony 19" Trinitron FD CRT w/Multiscan...
