Question video card? issues during games and after

I have been having problems with games, basically what happens is these weird triangles of different colors in the game are flickering over and over in random places on the screen when i play a 3d game for more than like 10 min. Nothing specific seems to trigger it, it happens at random during the game. I actually got a screenshot of it, here:



And once I exit the game, my desktop background looks like this,



Once I reboot, it is gone. but until then, it stays.

someone please reply for a first

I cant see the images... but it sounds like your graphics card is artifacting, this is usually due to it overheating... have you over clocked it??? if so you need to lower the settings you have set it to.

right after it started artifacting, i shut down the computer, opened it up and felt the card. The processor was obvioiusly covered by a little fan, but under it on the other side of the vid card (AGP by the way), it was very hot, so i think it could be overheating...any cooling suggestions without having to buy something right away?

well im a bit confused, my card is supposed to run at 1.5 volts, and it was set to 1.6, so i set it to 1.5 with AiBooster (a program that lets u ajust that) and rebooted, but in the bios it was still 1.6...??? so i set that to 1.5 and rebooted but it happened again. I think they are conflicting, but im not sure if voltage is the only thing that matters. what else should i check?
