Hello Lad,
Yes, it means that Your GPU is slowly dying. The black patches are called artifacts. You will see them more often later and that indicates, that You need to change Your GPU. Example of artifacts:

I have had this happen in the past and a driver re-installation cured the problem for me. The drivers get corrupted somewhere along the line, don't know how. My GPU was fine.
