No it's ok, you may have 2 valid options here.
Find out the manufacturer brand of that card and ask them for help.
If they determine your card is having problems and they want to replace it I would do so.
If thats not option, you may want upgrade your video card.
If you prefer nvidia under 120.00 you might be able to pick up a GTX 550ti.

I have this card here

Between those 2, the speed and shader clock maybe down about 20%-30% but my games don't see much difference at all even my AMD APU agrees with it at times.
If your in to high end gaming the GTX will work for you, if your like me on medium range based settings the GT series is very good choice.
I wish I could try a small demo of elder scrolls and crysis 2, I heard both of them would handle way to well on a GT platform cards.
