How to stop screen flicker on Windows 8.1 PC with AMD Radeon R9 270X graphics card?

I’m having a problem with screen flicker on my PC after installing an AMD Radeon R9 270X graphics card. I’ve made sure to reinstall the drivers and made sure they are up to date, and the card is seated securely. It’s driving me nuts; what else can I do to stop the flicker?
You aren’t the only one experience this issue. It is apparently a problem with that particular graphics card. A Microsoft support engineer suggests contacting AMD, and unfortunately, that’s probably the best you can do to resolve it at this point.

Relevant quote: “It seems the issue is with the specific model form [sic] AMD and I would recommend contacting AMD support for further assistance on this issue. “

Oh, and AMD Support link: http://support.amd.com/en-us/contact
