10. To see whether the card flickers in 2D, right click on desktop->properties->settings->advanced->GeForce FX 5900 Tab->Clock Frequencies->Click Auto Detect button. This will detect the appropriate clocks for the card while the screen should flicker, the same way it does in 3D

#5...I don't see the flicker at all in 2D but I do notice it slightly in 3D when the mouse wheel is engaged (Logitech MX-700).
Excellent analysis...I hope it helps fix the issue!
