It could be the video card, but by the way it happens for lke 20 seconds every few minutes makes me want to think its some other program or something. When I reformatted this computer last summer, there was something running that every like 10 seconds, would spike my cpu usage to 100%, then it would drop back down to what ever it was before (it would usually be like 3-4%).

good luck,
