This all started like as soon as summer started when it got hot. When i was playing Starcraft 2 the textures and Gui and stuff was fine until it started to get "distorted" and they started tearing all over the place little black pieces and chunks would be missing from the board,ALL OVER IT. So i say maybe its just a glitch and restart. It loads up everything is normal until about 3 seconds pass and BOOM Tearing and textures all across the screen. Same with Skyrim but its worse than starcraft 2 because i can still read and use the GUI on the menu but i load a save and everything is good all for 2 seconds and crash. Im lucky if i get to the texture tearing before it crashes.
NOTE ALL OF THESE PHOTOS HAPPEN IN A MATTER OF SECONDS. http://imageshack.us/g/266/tesv20120608162112322.jpg/
Right before crash http://imageshack.us/g/88/tesv20120608162149185.jpg/
When i am playing Skyrim it is lag free up until the crash point
When i am playing starcraft 2 only thing wrong is the textures being torn and ripped everywhere again LAG FREE.
When i play minecraft i get 40 - 60 Fps easy with HD textures installed no texture distortion.
Is my video card dying?
*Specs will be posted after second question.*
2nd question are these video cards compatible with my setup ( I know my Psu is to low for some and i plan on buying a 400 watt or 450 watt)
