Flickering spotlights

I have interior floodlights on a dimmer switch. I replaced the floodlights with new Ecosmart flood lights. The lights now flicker when the switch is turned all the way on. What are my options, I don't really want to go back to the energy sucking standard floods. Is that my only option?

the CF's do not like your dimmer. Replace the dimmer with a switch.

yeah either get a dimmable cfl, which is costly and still not that great. you could put a regular bulb in or do as nec said and put a regular non dimmable switch in...
