When I run the video clips, the screen would keep flicking and I see the diagonal line from top left to right bottom visually in the movie clip only.

What did I do with x1250 - I used Envy to install this video card. The video clips are running very well but it keeps flicking.

I thought it was the monitor - al2216w, and checked google, and didn't really solve this issue. Any ideas?

I had terrible issues with traingles appearing with my ATI x1250 , x1650 cards, I dont use them on my main system for effects/graphics any more since I upgraded to an nvidia card, I have seen great improvements in videos, effects and 3D graphics

The drivers are really poor in comparison to nvidia and it seems that until ATI upgrade drivers there will always be some problem somewhere or other.

Thanks, I guess I'll be looking around for a cheap nvidia card.
