I downloaded the latest Mint 19.1 version and the artefacts/flickering happened only when the is activity on the desktop. I tried to update the kernel to 15, mesa to 19, I reset my Bios oc, and I finally decided to try out different Linux distros. Non of those options did anything, Finally I changed the resolution to 1680 by 1050 and that did the trick. Now my question is what can I do to fix this since this resolution looks so much worse than the other one.

Apparently the problem fixed itself when I changed resolutions, which leads me to believe that the problem was hardware based. Either the monitor, GPU or hdmi cable.
