    I picked up a new LGe Monitor (L196WTQ), installed proper drivers and set everthing up.
    Only...
    It produces garbled desktop icons and a marquee like box around my mouse that flickers inconsistantly, images on my computer and the entire web are all completely fine.
    Games like World of Warcraft are flickering, garbled, and some things just shouldnt be there. Perhaps it has something to do with the Graphics Card? I have a Radeon 9800 Pro.
    Below is what I mean by "Garbled".

    Yeah, it looks to me like the card is artifacting on both the core and the memory. Is it overclocked?

    I forgot to mentionn, I don't know as much about computers as I believe I should. :/

    Define: Artifacting, Overclocked, and what do you mean by core and the memory?

    Core. GPU or gaphics core.

    Memory. Video ram or graphics ram.

    Overclocked. If you don't know what it is, I doubt you did it but it is a process in which you run a part at a higher/faster frequency than it was designed to run.

    Artifacting.........Look at your screenshot. That is artifacting.
