Wicca,
It does sound like the card is on it's last legs. I would also open the case and blow out all fans and openings then pay close attention to the cards fan if it has one. If all is clean and clear then I would begin to save or shop for the next upgrade and if you need help with suggestions we love to shop with other peoples money.....lol.

Well this is a stretch but do you have another cable to try? And when did this start happening? Have you added any software, is there a possibility of a virus or malware have you run a deep scan in safe mode? Maybe try a restore back point before this began happening?
