It doesn't take a genius that most to all vendors aren't changing anything from the reference know a days with the exception of maybe 1 or 3 vendors.
It sounds like a interference issue. For *****s and giggles I would try to remove the install plate (the one you screw to support the card) see if that is causing any interference. Plus someone try the TV-Out port... Since you can basically turn your TV into your monitor. It would be interesting to know if the TV-Out port has this same issue with rolling lines. If we can start eliminating certain situations. I'm sure it'll be easier to determine what's the problem.
I still think nVidia needs to do better Q&A if this has become a regular occurance with their chipsets since the GeForce 2 GPU.

Well I get rolling lines too on my Radeon 9500 card at lower resolutions on my analog output /shrug Upping to a high resolution fixes the problem tho.
It also happens to Radeon users. As I've heard people complain about it from them too. So you're singling out Nvidia isnt really fair
