no, not normal.

Could be a monitor or video card about to go on the fritz, but it could also be a buggy videodriver.

I would start by installing the latest videodriver for your videocard and see if that smooths it out

Also, check your physical connections of your monitor to the vid card and to the power outlet. Just wanna rule out connectvity problems.
