Hello Xenzo33,

Flickering like this could be caused by your PSU if you know its acting irregular. Can you try a different graphics card or PSU? perhaps even a surge protector or power cable as well? This is more of an a-typical flickering issue.

Hello XFX support i have changed my monitor cable twice and i got a smaller difference but thats not the problem the flickering line appear on idle and full load and the Psu is buzzing a bit on idle and lines appear and when its full load (watch dogs max settings) the game runs smoothly with no lag at all but the psu makes a lot of noise then idle and the lines appear even more there :/ i will RMA my psu so i can get a new one is the XFX TS SERIES 80PLUS BRONZE 650W enough for my specs?

Yes, 650W is enough power.

Is it possible to swap out any hardware to try in a different pc? once you start RMAing parts, you may find you have wasted more time than necessary. It should be 1 simple faulty unit, or a grounding issue, or something simple.

Quick question - are you using a VGA connection or DVI for your monitor?

You will find that VGA often causes flickering with some monitors due to the manufacturing process and components that are used, backlight specifically. I only ask because I recently experienced the same issue when moving from a 21" to a 24" - they were the same brand however the 24" was manufactured slightly differently and as such, a VGA connection was causing flickering.

i wouldn't recommend anything less than 650W.

Youtube lag may just be a buffering issue? it could be your ISP throttling youtube or simply a slower internet connection.
