    Are you using a browser with hardware acceleration capabilities? what happens if you switch it off?

    furmark is a GPU stress/stability program. what prime95 does for CPUs, furmark does for GPUs.

    your video card may be failing on you, its a good idea to check it out.

    Tell us what hardware you have pixum20 and don't stress the GPU yet! It might tip it right over the edge, be better to edge on the cautious side for the moment.

    If two GPU's are doing this, then your monitor is cooked.

    Sounds like GPU artifacting to me... clean out the dust and check temperatures, and I assume it's not overclocked right? If possible try testing with another card to rule out the display itself.

    I'd suggest uninstalling flash for a bit. Weird yeah but I had this weird problem where the whole screen went insane with a bit of flash use.

    Hey its an idea is all.
