For about a year, i've had no troubles with my video card. Just until April 2011, its been getting a lot slower, and slower. Then this september, i upgraded my video card to a radeon 6450, and as well as a 500watt powersupply. Ever since that installation. I've been getting flickering screens, my graphics are spiking out of everything. I've gotten an occasional blue screen once in a while.

Processor: AMD Phenom(tm)9750 Quad-Core Processor 2.40 GHz

After looking around on the asus website you've sent. I looked around and tried to find any in my area, and so far no luck.
M3N78-VM are to seem to be the only viable ones.
