"Initially - i had flickering. If I grabbed a window and moved it around quickly, there was a white line flicker about 2/3 the way up the screen. I actually did an RMA with newegg but because I had already sent in the bar code for rebate, they sent me the card back
So - apparently on 12/18/2012, Gigabyte released a BIOS update for this video card that fixes, among other things, "Fixed screen flicker problem".
You have to go here
http://www.gigabyte.us/support-download ... .aspx?cg=3
and get the VGA Tools - Easy Boost
Then install and run it and follow the instructions here
to check your existing BIOS version so you know which one to download - F11 or F22. If your BIOS is F10, you need to flash F11 and if your BIOS is F20, you need to flash F22.

Cons: That Gigabyte would ship a video card with this issue and that there would be an inobvious fix - video card BIOS flashing is VERY esoteric and honestly I stumbled on the fix."
Please post if you've tried this and if it worked!
