Hello. My motherboard is an ASUS Pro-Turbo P5Q, with 8.00 GB,an intel q8200 quadcore, and an Nvidia GTX 560 (I will post more details if needed.)

Quite recently I have been getting some very odd behavior. The first sign I noticed was that often when it came time for my screen saver to pop up the no sync screen would display instead. I could move the mouse and it would go away. Yesterday I was playing Neverwinter Nights (A rather old game) and all of a sudden I was greeted with a BSOD. This happened very randomly then afterwards, even with games like Skyrim I could play for long periods of time like usual with no problems. It later occured again with WoW simply idling, and then today while watching netflix the card went up to 90c as if straining hard. I have just reformatted my computer and now my screen seems to lose sync whenever I go to install a graphics driver or while running windows update. I have already blown out my computer safely with compressed air and make sure the heat sink was cleared.

My computer has been running great for about six months. I am really at wits end here. I would rather not buy a graphics card and have these problems persist. At first I assumed that it was malware related, hence my reformatting..
