I guess flickering pixels

Over the past few days something came up when I'm playing games on steam... Some worse then others. There these clear dots that sometimes spaz out on the screen. Several decent sized dots everywhere.

Re: flickering pixels

Most likely a video card issue. Try a new videocard?
Somewhat less likely: a monitor issue. But another monitor is so much easier to try than another videocard that it's best to do that first.

Maybe nothing.

There are some cards that just die. Google this -> https://www.google.com/#q=8400+defective <-

And then we have folk stuffing PCs into Nano cases that accelerates the aging. Or never heard of canned air and more.
