Can't explain weird display problem

Hi, my display is really off and there are times when games are pixelly(?) and there are times when its fine. I am here to identify if it is a GPU problem or a monitor problem. Here is a picture taken with my phone because you guys might not see it if i print screened. Thanks guys.

EDIT: errr sorry guys, its rotated to the right for some reason ...the yellow arrows should be pointing up, sorry for the inconvenience

If that is not the case then check to see if your GPU driver is up-to-date?
