****. I went to Best Buy, bought a $20 DVI Cable, hooked up, everything works fine.

10 minutes later, my screen flickers again. I notice as my screen gets warmer it flickers more!!

So its not the GPU or the DVI Cord. Bad Monitor? Why was it working fine for 3 months and then I move to a new place and its flickering? help

Maybe if I moved the GPU to a different slot?
