Please remember that we are all volunteers here and cannot be here all of the time as we all have families and other commitments such as work, your topic would also have been better if post on the hardware forum as it is hardware related and not game specific, no harm done though as I will assist you here.
What you are describing appears to be what is called artifacting and this can be caused by a damaged card, overheating, driver issue and a bad or underpowered PSU.
What brand is the 465W PSU?
PSUs you can trust and ones to avoid http://forum.pcmech....ide-inside.html
Unless you have removed the HS (heatsink) and CPU fan you should not need to clean off and reapply the thermal paste.
Some testing for you to do;
Download Speedfan and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.
(this is a screenshot from a vista machine)
To capture and post a screenshot;
