Gpu Artifacting ?

Hello, Whenever I watch videos either on youtube, or netflix If its in full screen and at the highest resolution i notice a blocky effect, Its not the same effect when you watch

it in low resolution Its a bunch of rectangles and squares the flash in and out almost like the video is refreshing too fast, Sometimes on normal youtube videos there is a

layer or squares in the background of dark images, I tested my Cpu, Ram With prime 95 for an hour or two I got no errors, I don't notice artifacting in games or when I ran

stress tests, This seems to happen in videos and on pictures like wallpapers or high resolution images there is a circle/block effect, I tested my gpu with OCCT and I got like

122,000 Errors. I also tried enabling and disabling hardware acceleration on videos using adobe flash and microsoft silver light (??). That did nothing video still has flashing

stuff in background but it blends in with the colors of the video so its hard to notice. Also my GPU Temps are usually high, Its Almost always over 42C Idle, I have a HAF 932

case, I removed the GPU airduct that comes with the case because it don't fit with my gpu. The GPU Is an AMD Radeon 6970 (HIS Ice Q) It comes factory Overclocked at

900mhz. I have never OC'd it. I'm thinking about buying a new GPU Possibly a Zotac 670 for 359$ if would that be a major increase over my 6970, There is a similarly priced

660Ti 3GB Evga Ftw For 350$, Should I go for that or Zotac 670, I Ran Crysis 3 (Beta) with my 6970 at max with fxaa getting about 25-32 frames. It was un playable, I had to

lower settings to medium to get at least 50-60 frames. Anyway any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Its just the video's quality. Sometimes you can change it if it supports other resolutions

But it happens with videos that are 1080p, and on netflix which is at least 720p, Again the little squares dont look like a low resolution video, there are literally flickering lines and squares in the background of the video that has nothing to do with the resolution

Here is a picture of the block effect, I uploaded it to tinypic

http://tinypic.com/r/29w3m0w/6

The blocky effect is on a wallpaper but generally that's how it looks in videos



If anyone can help all i need to know is if my GPU is going bad or not, Thanks

I can't Motherboard doesn't support integrated graphics. Its an Asrock P67 Extreme 4 Gen 3, It has no video ports (Hdmi, Vga, Dvi, etc) On it. My friend has a computer similar to mine so I will watch the videos over his place to see if it has the same blocky effect. If It doesn't I'm going to guess its my GPu and buy a new one. Until then Ill leave this question open for any further information or advice because i need it.. Thanks for the replies.

Here is a link of another thing graphical error that happened while I was playing Kerbal Space program, I look on other videos and other people don't have this. So is that artifacting in the picture ? Those lines move all around the runway when I move
