I got a brand new Dell Optiplex 780 with 24" screen.  The screen has a nasty flicker.  Especially when moving open windows around.  
I swapped the screen and the same thing continues.  

Would that be a video graphic card?  I don't have another one to swap.  It's a dual HDMI via DVI doungle.
ATI Radeo HD 3470.

Thanks.

Yes, Sounds like the video card. Try updating the drivers, and if that does not work, return it to dell.

Updating driver helped.  Embarrased didn't think about this first.
