It started about a month ago, and it's getting progressively worse. It began with full screen videos; large purpleish and gray horizontal lines would appear on my screen. Now my desktop has the same lines just much smaller. I've included two screen shots, one of my desktop and another of a game. Now, the graphics in games are being heavily distorted. Any ideas? :)

Video card or motherboard is dying. I put my money on video card. I had similar problems but my lines were red.

To be extra sure, trying pluggin a different monitor in and see what is displayed.
