I purchased a MSI nVidia 6600 video card about a year ago (see link below). Ove the past few weeks I have noticed my case becoming hot around the video card slot. I took my side panel off and put a fan near by to blow on the card itself. Last night I went to launch a movie on my computer and the screen kept flickering as if someone was turning the monitor on and off very fast. I eventually had to shut the PC down manually. I tried 3 different movies on 3 different media players. Today when I went online to play a multiplayer game I started getting dramatically fewer FPS (dropping from 100+ to 30 fps). I also started getting random lines (while in game) that I have only seen before when people have tried to overclock their cards and had problems.
While I have run various tests and cleaned out the fan and etc. on the card itself, and have run PCpitstops full test all of which has come back fine. Any ideas?
As I said it is an MSI card and about a year or less old. I dont know what the odds are of them replacing it.
