Only thing I can say is it looks to be drivers, assuming all the hardware is working properly.
The PSU is more than enough to run that card, and system, and could easily handle 2 cards with power to spare, and its a top quality brand/psu.
all the parts seem to be compatible, so not an issue there.
you mention all drivers and updates are installed.
just to be sure, did you install the card with the latest updates from AMD's site for the Display Drivers and Catalyst Control panel?
You mention its not overclocked, do you know what the GPU's operating temps are when it does this flickering and color changes?
Do you have another PCIe video card you could test with, just to make sure you didn't get a bad apple card (most of thos MSI cards are good, but even the best brands have a few bad cards off the assembly line)i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
