Default monitor blinks with heavy use?

i currently have an lg flatron 22 inch screen that blinks when being used heavily (gaming, videos, movies, even downloads). my question is whats causing these blinks, they last about 1-2 sec. i have stock video card which is my guess... any ifo would be great thanks.

Bad power supply, get a new 500W, although the same spec PSU would be fine, I would go just a little higher.

In your other post you're getting a new GPU and PSU so you'll be good after that upgrade.
