    Hello everyone.

    I've been doing my normal things such as browsing the internet, until yesterday, where after a period of 10 or so minutes of playing Overwatch, I am now getting random green artifacts with the computer completely freezing soon afterwards. I have been able to play Overwatch for hours at a time and I've never had this problem before.

    It has now gotten to the point where it has refused to boot up in normal mode, with the screen looking like this.

    At first I thought it was because it was it was overheating, So I cleaned out the dust as best I could.

    After cleaning, the GPU idle's at 45-47C, with it going up to 71C while playing Overwatch. Which when I checked seem to be in reasonable range for a card like mine.

    I've had this computer for about six years now.

    Here are my System Specs:
    Motherboard - Asus P8Z77-V LX
    CPU - Intel Core i5-3450 @ 3.1GHz
    GPU - Nvidia Geforce GTX 570 1280MB (At Stock Speeds, No Overclocking)
    Sound Card - Asus Xonar DG
    PSU - XigmaTek NRP-PC702 (700W)
    RAM - 8GB

    Any suggestions please?

    Faulty VRAM.

    Suggestions are to replace the GPU, that's a hardware defect.

    Lastly, if you plan on upgrading to a high power GPU, I suggest replacing the PSU for peace of mind.
    If memory serves right, that one is around 10 years old by now.

    Thank you for your quick reply earlier.

    So if I replaced my faulty 570 with a GTX 1050 or a 1060 and got a 650W Corsair PSU (I was thinking something like this), Would I still be able to run my computer despite having 50w less?

    Don't rush with buying anything. You have iGPU on your Intel Core i5-3450.
    Remove GTX570 from PC and run from iGPU, see if problem still persist.

    Once you sure it's GPU issue, you may buy new video card without wasting money.

    Ok so it crashed again when I used 3DMark Vantage to benchmark the GPU, but this time I had GPU-Z to log down the info in realtime I was able to get this.

    This is the last minute or so before it crashed.
