So i just chagned from gtx 660 to 980 and its working pretty good, i get alot better fps but there is this flickering i get sometimes on my screen.
Like every 1-5 minutes there is a flicker on both my screens but not at the same time, it doesnt matter if im in a game or not. It just randomly flickers for like half a second and my fps goes down for that moment alot.

asus R9 270X directCu II flickering - YouTube



Even though its not exactly how it looks on mine but suepr similar i found this video of a guy with same problem


Any help or tip is appreciated

I have the latest driver installed.
One guy told me he had the same issue on his card after updating to this driver, Will going back to an old driver might fix it? Not sure how to do it but would that work?

Want to try a clean driver install? Use Driver Fusion,free clean application,go to driver family tab,select display,delete,restart and install latest recommended drivers,see how it goes,i'll be around waiting
I insist on using Driver Fusion,it really uninstalls in depth previous drivers

DDU is sufficient,good you used it.Does the problem occur while in safe mode too?If not,it might indicate that an application causes the flickering

NVidia site while searching for drivers,they appear in order by release date,choose the version you want to try out and download those, fully uninstall with Driver Fusion or DDU and do a clean installation.
