You should try to update your graphics card drivers too.
It really looks like a faulty card, I've seen that a couple of times, but it could also be that your card is overheated.
You can check the graphics card temp. with SpeedFan (they shouldn't be higher than 35 deg celcius), you should also open up your rig and try cleaning your GPU cooler (an air compresser should be quite effective, if you touch the card watch out that your grounded first), and make sure that there is at least one slot empty next to the card so it can get cooled effiently.

good luck my friend. :whistling:

i wouldnt suggest use an air compressor because often they can spit alot or even a bit of water form the nozzel.

go out and buy a can of compressed air and clean it with that.

and more than often your card will be hotter than 35 C once it is being used i have seen some get really hot so dont be surprised if it is higher than 35 C
