  1. I would say it is probably your card overheating either because of a defect or because the fan isn't spinning as fast as it should. Either way, you likely need a new card.
  2. Download and install GPU-Z. Go to the Sensors tab and it will tell you the temp for you GPU as well as fan speed on your card....
