One problem I did have initially was regarding a VGA extension cable. The Belkin that I'd always used worked fine on lower RAMDAC cards but the 5900 Ultra "ghosted" in Windows. So, I just got a high-density VGA extension cable and problem solved. There was no flickering at that time though, only ghosting effects which were directly related to a sub-par extension cable.
Ok, well I guess that blows that theory too.

Yeah, I learned a while back that high quality cables are rated for certain screen sizes. Ghosting is the big problem with extensions.
