Default help with video card/monitor problem

i'm not sure if my problem lies within my video card (evga nvidia 7600gt) or my monitor (19 inch viewsonic vx922 lcd) but a red bar on the right side of my screen randomly appears and vanishes from time to time.

i had to take a pic with my camera and couldnt do a print screen since it probably wouldnt show up red on other monitors.

here's the pic:

it's really bothersome on everything black (obviously) but on everything else thats colored, the red bar is pretty dim. still annoying though.

help would be appreciated as always.
thanks in advance.

Easy Solution...sort of-obtain another monitor, hook it up and see if it does the same thing...if it does it's the video card...if not it's the monitor. Case Closed
