Windows 7: Possible GPU or MoBo problem?

Possible GPU or MoBo problem?

While playing a game on my pc, i noticed that a green irregular shaped surface appears (for just like a flash or 1 mili sec.) on my screen when the GPU should produce the best quality of image. After that i noticed that happens when i watch a 720p vid on youtube. The green surface doesn't always appear on the same spot, and it's like 1/20 of the entire screen.
My system specs:
MoBo: Asus P5N-D http://img.directcanada.com/images/A...D/P5N-D_IO.jpg
CPU: Intel 3200 MHz 1 core, 2 logical processors, Pentium 4; ( x64 capable; soc775 )
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5450 1 GB DDR3;
Ram: 3 GB DDR2 3x 1 Gb (2x 800mhz, 1x 553mhz)
PSU: LC-Power LC6480S Scorpio-480W
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x86
HDD: WD 40 GB Blue Caviar;

It is hard for me to explain you the problem, hope you understand, and hope someone answers me soon.

Any chance of a screen shot either from a camera or a print screen dump (snipping tool)?

Practically impossible, because as i mentioned, it doesn't cover the entire screen for like 2-3 sec so that i have time to react. It appears just like a little flash for just 1 mili sec... my pc slowed down a little in the past 4-5 days... have no idea what is happening so i came here to see if i can do something before major damage is made, or to know what is the destiny of my machine

OK so why don't we just check a few things out like temps voltages etc.
Download and run these three programs and leave running to see if your temps are rising.
Video Card Download TechPowerUp GPU-Z v0.6.6 | techPowerUp

System CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

Download and run these programs and then go about your normal computing. Every so often check out the temps, volts etc for anything weird.
GPU Z can even save a file to a log so if you are gaming we can look back and see if your temps are normal or not. Post back if you need any help,
Tony.

Well now i tested a game (SBK 2011) that i played earlier on max settings, and it didn't lag at all. Now, it barely runs and lags like hell! My entire pc slowed down, checked twice for viruses, but no positive results... Do you have any suggestion for a free antivirus check? Have no idea what's the problem....
BTW how good are my temperatures standing
