Default [FC5] Screen flickers under high load

This must be the most odd problem i've ever seen. Situation:
I'm running Fedora Core 5, on an Asus A7N8X-Deluxe with AMD Athlon 2800+ (barton). Inside is a nVidia Geforce FX 5600. The system is running Fedora Core 5. Hooked onto this PC is a monitor on DVI, and a TV on VGA. My X.org config is attached to this post. Installed are the latest official nVidia drivers, and all updates for Fedora are installed aswell. I'm not using AIGLX, just plain old X.org.
Now, when the computer is under high load for a period of time, the DVI monitor starts to stretch and destretch. Not so funny when participating in distributed.net, leaving the processor under constant high load. If I don't kill dnetc when the screen starts acting weird, it will start flickering (off for a while, then on again). Eventually the only thing that helps is killing the task that produces the load. The TV (VGA) remains to work correctly.
How comes, what can I do about this, and/or is this a bug in the drivers?
