Default Flickering? (new graphics card()

So i've recently upgraded my graphics card from an msi Geforce gtx 550 ti to asus geforce gtx 660 ti. Everything works fine, the card runs smoothly at max 70 degrees C. The only problem is that under high load (EG: Borderlands 2 maxed out graphics, even Star wars the old republic) i notice some whiter "lines" that flicker and move up and down on my monitor. I tried using my tv as a monitor to see if this problem goes away and it did. The only difference i can find between my monitor and my tv is that the tv uses a hdmi input and the monitor vga. Now i`m seriously thinking of buying a new monitor (old one was kind of **** anyways). My questions are: Do you think that will surely solve my problems? and Is there any other alternative to buying a new monitor?

Does your TV, by chance, also have a VGA input? I know a lot of HDTVs have "PC input" which is actually a VGA port. Perhaps try that, too, and see what happens before you go get a new monitor.
