Does my motherboard compatible with my videocard?

i have a problem with my pc, i have a gigabyte motherboard with amd athlon II 240 socket am3 and i put a gigabyte 8500gt 512mb videocard. At first it runs very smoothly but for just a short period of time the display was becoming blurred until now. I have 12 units and i used it in internet cafe and as of now 3 of them was having a severe display problem as i mentioned above. I am hoping that you can help me of solving this matter...

Million thanks,
Dylan

  1. Make sure everything inside your case are free of dust.
    8500GT wouldn't take much power, so any PSU will good.
    Check your card's temps to be sure whether this is an overheating card or not...

    Make sure that you have updated the drivers for the video card and If you have overclocked the video card please don't overclocked it too much..
    Another thing is that make sure the temp in your PC has a nice flow inside. Please get back to me about your problem if it still acts.
