Hello guys so i came to a point where i couldnt play games anymore ( i play pretty heavy games ) , the game freezes and i see small colorfull dots randomly on the screen and then it crashes , i still usuely able to return to windows after that . I had few times the small icon with the trinagle and ! which saying there is a memory issue if i not mistaken? so since i didnt format my windows system for a very long time i did so. Now it runs smoothly and for 2 days i played for many hours in a row without any issues and today it happened again.
Now its not overheating i been checking that and i am no where close to that, is there a chance its my graphic card going bad? seems kinda wierd altough, any chance u familier with those simptoms? i got a new 500w power supply my card is gtx 460 and well the pc is 3-4 years old.

The card could be failing. Is it still under warranty (probably not)? If it is, then you could try RMA'ing it. Ask a friend if you can borrow their card to see if it works.

I used to have the same issues with my 460s. Have you tried using older/different graphics drivers? Some of the drivers didn't work for my cards for whatever reason and using some older drivers seemed to do the trick.

I am going to try roll back to an older driver maybe its indeed the problem
