Hi all,

I have an Nvidia 8600 GTS (From BFG, and it is also factory overclocked)

Recently, I have been experiencing issues where the screen would get this blueish static on the screen while playing games, and sometimes there are pink/purple spots that appear for a second... I can play but it usually gets worse over time, and eventually I just reboot, and after that, it goes back to normal for awhile, before acting up again. The time it takes for it to mess up is usually around 45 minutes - 2 hours, so it varies a lot, and sometimes doesn't mess up at all.

I am not doing any overclocking of my own to the card, and the idle temp right now is 57 C, and when playing a game is around 70 C. I have the side off my case to try to keep it cool...because I wasn't sure if it was overheating, and I also blew a lot of dust out of the card the other day with compressed air, and it still acts up.

I also have the latest drivers from nvidia installed.
