Hello, lately i've been getting some weird artifacts (deformed texture lines) and crashes in games. My GPU is pretty old, a Gts 450. I use it for casual gaming, like CS:GO, World of Tanks and Rocket League. In CSGO i get some green artifacts and sometimes it crashes going me to the desktop. In Rocket League i get some frequent artifacts and lines and after 5-10 minutes the game crashes. The GPU and CPU temps are fine (around 40-60C),changed the thermal paste not long ago on the GPU so it's okay, i would assume the VRAM is dying, since it's an old card. For some that ask me why i still use this GPU is because i rarely do gaming and the prices of hardware is pretty expensive in my region (east Europe). I never did overclocking and i want to surely know from you guys that my card is dying or it's from another problem.
OS is Windows 10
Drivers are the latest since fermi was discontinued.

Time for a new one. Artifacts are likely memory errors, (from overclock or memory banks or memory controller).
Well yeah, thank you, thought the same thing. It must be from the age, because i didn't do any overclocking or when i got power outages something went wrong inside my computer.
