It doesn't sound like a driver issue to me, although it might be worth looking on the ATI website for a driver update.

Personally I would try another video card if possible. You've already swapped the monitor and the new one exhibits the same problem. If you can borrow another card to test with you can rule in or out the necessity to buy a new card.

If it is the card then there could be a memory fault associated with heat build up, or it could be the Digital-to-Analogue convertor on the card.
