  1. Last time that happened to me, my video card was dying.

    Additionally, it might be due to heat as a result of...

    1. Dust
    2. Deteriorating thermal paste between the CPU and heat sink
    3. Deteriorating thermal paste between the video chip and heat sink

    The CPU might be failing as well.
  2. What games does this "any" include? Because those specs are quite old, I doubt any modern game could run with those specs.
