Looks like artifacts. Could be driver, resolution, memory, or heat.

I opened up my computer and disconnected the power and put my face in the box. Didn't feel too hot. I wiggled the graphics card around, it was secure. I also cleaned up some of the dust in it just to make sure. It's fine now, but when i play a 3d game, it'll probably happen again. ill just try it, to make sure.

It seems that the game I'm playing, Dragonica, seems to spark the problem. Dragonica is 3D, so if that helps...

2.Run and set the application as admin
-right click on the shortcut of Dragonica or Dragonica.exe in the Release folder

Mine did the exact same the other night, but I was only playing a bunch of avi files, had 6 or so videos playing.
Rebooted and hasn't happened since.
It most likely is the Vram on the video card or the drivers.

Run this and see if it will happen in this program,
