Is my GPU dying?

For the past few months my PC has been having weird errors. In the middle of games I will have my screen full of vertical lines and my PC becomes unresponsive. This morning I turned it on and got a black screen with a single red pixel. Before I make a purchase for a new GPU I was wondering if it’s a GPU issue or possibly something else. Attached are a few instances of when I had these things happen.

How are you connected to the monitor?
Have you tried another cable?
Have you tried another monitor? Or another monitor using a different connection?
The gpu is getting a lil older, have you considered cleaning it and re-pasting it?
You could always lower the clock speed of the memory a small amount 50Mhz or so to bring down temps

hi sorry for late reply
DVI, I do not have another cable or monitor but I will give it a go with a diff cable, I haven’t considered repasting, I’ll give that a go.
Yesterday I removed the GPU and I was finally able to get images on my screen and my pc stopped crashing however whenever I boot up League of Legends or BF4 I get some type of screen glitch. Video here.

that looks like memory issues, could be related to the cabling as well, but yeah try all those steps where possible
