Windows 7: Garbled text and green lines through my screen

Garbled text and green lines through my screen

All of a sudden my computer screen has green/purple or black lines through it and I get garbled text on startup as well.

I tested my screen with another computer and it works fine, I also used the same cable as well.

I'm guessing my graphics card is on its way out? I have a gtx 275
