I doubt a "more powerful" card is a good solution to your
problem. My 20" Viewsonic LCD is 1400x1050@60. When I
first got it 2 years ago I was using a
4MB Tseng PCI card designed in 1996. It gave no problem in
framebuffer, DOS or OS/2, but did for a time have a problem
in Mandriva's X that eventually got fixed:

Will yours work OK if you boot a Knoppix CD? Have you tried
commenting out
the UseModes line in xorg.conf?

Thanks Felix.

I commented out the UseMode option in xorg.conf but it did
not make any change. Furthermore the monitor works perfectly
except these short blinks.

I played a little bit connecting the monitor to the card using
digital (DVI-D) cable and analog VGA cable (D-Sub).
I also tried another graphics card, NVIDIA FX5200.

This is what I found:

Blinking occurs:
ATI Radeon 7000/VE card with digital cable

Blinking DOES NOT occur:
ATI Radeon 7000/VE card with analog cable
NVidia FX5200 card with digital cable
NVidia FX5200 card with analog cable

I have to switch to analog cable instead of digital.
I thought that digital connection was superior to analog, but it
seems not in every case.
