Video problems can be the effect of your video card going, but it can also be the effect of bad RAM. What I suggest you do, if you won't void any warranty(s) doing so, is to open up your case and take out the memory and reseed them. If you have two or more sticks, I suggest you first try taking them both out and then reseed them. If that doesn't work, take out one stick at a time testing each stick in the machine by itself in both slots, aka test each stick in slot one and slot 2 and slot 3, etc.. by themselves. Turn on the computer during each step and see if the picture gets better.
If the picture doesn't get better, then it is most likely a video card problem, in which case I would try to borrow a video card from a friend/family member or other computer if you have one in your house that uses a PCI/AGP video card and see if that solves your video problem. Only telling you to do this first so that you don't go wasting money on a video card and then find out it wasn't the video card at all, but rather a motherboard problem.

Also, adding to fenor's post, what's your current graphics card? Is it integrated, AGP, PCI, or PCI-Express?
