  1. It has now come to black lines going up and down the screen, and small "black outs" where the monitor stops recieving a signal for a split second
  2. reload drivers, if that doesnt help your gpu is probably bad, considering that thing is way old and uses alot of juice.
  3. Start with updating the graphics driver: http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/57096. If that doesn't work, open the case, remove the card and then plug it back in. Might just be bad seating in the slot.
  4. Probably bad card. They aren't new and they ran hot.
  5. test your hardware

    furmark
    prime
    memtest

    windows 8 enterprise -- you sure the crack didn't mess with the core windows files?

    pentium G620 as a gaming cpu?

    make sure the whole rig is built correctly, cpu hsf seated correctly etc
