if the image error can be caught with a screen grab..then it a video card issue. I would start by unplugging the power supply from the wall. open the case..blow all the dust out. turn the pc back on and check that the gpu and cpu fans are moving fine..over time fan can fail..stop or the spin to slow to work. gpu issue can be caused from heat...bad power or a bad part on the gpu. rule out heat if blow the dust out and reset and clean the video card. power issue you need another power supply to test to see if the card glitches stopped.

So, i took the pc for pieces, cleaned everything, then reassembled the pc piece by piece, and i connected an other power supply cable to the gpu.
So for now its working pretty good!

Thank You smorizio

You should start to develop a standard time for cleaning your pc. Dust can reek havoc on a pc if left alone for to long. I look to clean my pc every 2-3 months because during the dry months there is a lot of wind and a lot of dust can end up in my computer. usually though I let it sit during the winter.
