Looks like GPU memory (RAM) slot failure.
1) Go some GPU test softwares. Hiren's boot CD -> Video Memory Stress Test. You will see GPU memory faults. One thing is good about bootable CD is that you 99% sure there is no virus which can change test results.
2) Try to plug-in another GPU.
Well look to the bright side, maybe it is good time to upgrade your GPU.
