You sir, have a dieing graphics card... Hopefully you didn't pay all that much for it, cause it looks as if it's been cooked. Artifacts all over the place, blocks of color gone, etc...
I assume you have the game settings NOT at ultra?

Depending on how old the card is, you might be able to contact the company and as long as you don't tell them were you bought it, they might be able to RMA it. but to be honest, I doubt it, considering the issues.

It's just artifacting. Try tone down your graphical options ingame.

Also what temps are you getting? Show us a screenshot of HWMonitor.

You get what you pay for in eBay. Yes, I have gotten some pretty awesome things, but you never know if you are getting a crappy item.
