Default My GPU dying or what?

Okay, so lately my computer has been acting a bit weird. It first started on Crysis where the video will get allll the messed up. The screen will turn green and all kinds of weird colors. The audio will still be there, but then I need to restart the game. (I have the very high settings XP hack, so that may be the reason for that) The next problem is that my computer will crash and restart in a game as simple as WoW. I figure this might be with GPU overheating? And lastly, some games will lock up, and I have to do a hard shut down. Do you think my GPU might be giving up from being overclocked? or is there maybe something wrong somewhere else.

I was watching evga precision tool and coretemp monitors and my GPU and neither one of my 4 CPU cores reached above 47C really.

I'll check out ATI tool and get back

whats a good program to check my northbridge with?

well it has been about 15 minutes now, and no artifacts have been found

This might just be a little fan or something, but I hear a little bit of clicking while my computer is running.. not sure exactly what that could be..

GPU's are meant to operate at higher temps than cpu's.

okay, then it must be something else that is causing my computer to crash and restart. I'd be surprised if it is heat.. i have 6 120mm fans..

Moved to the correct section, I would have deleted it, however the rule has been in effect like a few new hours
