Hey guys, sometimes when i start up my computer and use it for awhile, it will then have lines on the screen then crash, is there anyway to fix this? Or is this a faulty graphics card?

*Update* This was when i was just browsing around tumbler or something, so no overheating or anything.

How's your power supply? And yes, are your drivers up to date?

Apparently my graphics card came in faulty, tested with two computers with a 600watt corsair PSU, and it still crashes. Going to RMA it right away.
