Lately my 9500gt has been acting up while playing games, or even sometimes just on the desktop. my screen will start looking like this. http://img405.imageshack.us/i/90094212.jpg/ I have an Athlon 2 quad core, 4 gigs ddr3 ram, Asus mobo and a 500 watt power supply. I'm also using Vista 64 bit and the latest Nvidia drivers.
I'm hoping my card isn't fried.
Thanks!

Looks Like bad VRAM to be. what warrenty do you have with your card?

could also be overheating. does it do this straight away when you boot up or do you play a game first then does it happen?

Yes, it has a working fan. On the over-clocking tool that came with the card, the fan indicates that it never goes above 43 degrees, and I've even tried running the fan on top speed while performing tasks. It doesn't do it right away, but will when I'm playing games, or running multiple tasks on the desktop. Also, my case is relatively dust free as of about a week ago =).
