Hello guys! Few months ago I noticed that my only games FIFA13 and WoW 3.3.5 are crashing when during the matches or 25 raids.When it crashes I hear horrible sound from my speakers and I see pink,purple dots,lines on the screen.If i quit the game the desktop looks fine but If i try to enter the same or another game or some video-music player I have the same problem .This problem last until I restart my computer.I visited already 2 service points and their verdict was that my video card is ok,but my problem occurs at random times, not every time I play,this is why those guy could not see live my problem because it didn't appear. They suggested me to re install Windows,I did+format both disks,but after one day the problem came back.I updated all the drivers from the official site,I updated Directx and windows updated everything +I do not use any kind of codec. My Computer spec is: GeForce 430 1GB,Amd Phenom x4 850 3,30Ghz,4 GB RAM.Below are links to youtube to see how my computer looks when that problem occurs. Please help me,I' desperate to fix it.Thank you in advance.

Clean all the crud out of the innards.
Get those heat sinks and fans nice and spiffy.
Verify all the fans function.
Leave the side cover off......test.

Tools......A small brush and a can of compressed air.
Don't be afraid to put a few shots of air through the psu.
You might be amazed at the amount of stuff that blows out of that thing.
