  1. That looks like an overheating or bad chip issue on the card. Usually if the chips get damaged like that, they do not go back to normal, if it's just an overheating issue, you can check the cooling in the case, make sure there is no dust, clean off the video card headsink and fan, maybe get a better fan for it.
  2. thanks for a quick reply :) well, thats common cleaning a video card. i did it already, cleaned it. anyway my fan is stock.

    but thats problem still exist. you u mean its my graphics card issu?
  3. Does look like a GPU overheat or other serious issue.

    I've gotten artifacts from video card sag before, the card bending under it's own weight. Solution was to lay the computer down (motherboard facing up)loosen the motherboard screws, install video card without screwing it down, and line everything up until there is little to no stress on the video card. Then gently tighten every screw, and go back and finally tighten each screw.

    If the video card has a backplate, make sure it isn't loose.

    Yes, about 95% sure it's the card. Try it in another system, it should do the same thing. Maybe not right away, but run it for an hour or so and see how it acts.

    i suspect too that it is overheat. coz my vc temp is goes up to 80c .. and when i touch the video card. its too hot. im thinking i have to sell it and buy a new 9600gt. anyway, what can u recommend a good video card with good cooling in gt400 series or something like that? same performance as 9600gt? thanks.

    Don't know how well you will do selling a bad card, it's probably trash, you may get $5 or $10 for it tops.

    If you want to pick up something cheap, a used nVidia 9800GT or GTX will be good, and you can find one for about $40-50. Or going new, ATI 7750 for under $100 is great. You can go $20 cheaper for a 6670, that will work OK with your CPU also. A 6670 new is not much more than a used card.

    With your power supply wattage you can also go for something higher end that can be moved to a better system later, ATI 7770 or up.

    The card has a video RAM problem.
    Try underclocking it (set the memory speed below stock) it sometimes helps but the only full solution is to replace the card.

    Yes, that video card will match the CPU pretty well, but you can get a new 7750 for almost the same price and it's the same speed. If the 5770 is NEW with a warranty, it's worth it. If used, get the 7750.
