I think your eyes must have a problem with your monitor's refresh rate or something bizzare. There is no shimmering or flickering on that video lol. It looks perfect

I returned the 4870 and got a cheaper 9800GTX+ SSC, but was unhappy to see the shimmering still there!
I've already seeked advice on my Flight Sim forum, and have tried dozens of different nHancer settings, but sadly the problem still exists.
I've also tried different VGA/DVI cables, but it still happens.
I have tested Burnout: Paradise and CSS and do experience some shimmering in those as well, so I can rule out it being an issue with FS2004.
I've searched for weeks on the internet, but have only found stuff to do with FSX DX10 mode and shimmering issues back in 06/07 before many found out about nHancer etc.
I'm completely out of ideas - I have an Enermax 600W Noisetaker, but from what I could tell I do have enough going ampage going through the 12V rail.
Could the monitor be causing this shimmering?
EDIT: Here's a video I made to try and show what I'm experiencing, it's harder to see since it's been compressed, but you can download the original video in the bottom-right corner..
The shimmering/flickering can be seen on buildings and things like the lamp posts and jetways.
