My computer has been having this issue for over a month now, I took a screenshot of it using Print Screen, so it's not my monitor

I'm thinking it's the video card but I'd like a second opinion before I replace anything.

Here's a link to the image OKWXMX1.jpg

It will be either the video card or RAM, by appearance I'd suspect more likely the card. If you are using a video card in a mainboard that also has onboard video, try removing the card and revert to the onboard video, see if the fault departs with the card.

Using either card or onboard video, you can check whether it's a RAM fault if the system has more than one DIMM. Swapping the locations of DIMMs will reveal if the effect is being created in system RAM, since a different DIMM will be being used for video tasks.

That's a great illustration of video memory failure.  Related to a plug in card, for if it was the MOBO, it would beep itself off the desk.
