    Your graphics card is giving up the ghost. The same thing happened on my PC and I got a refund.

    LOL. It was an nVidia that died for me though.

    Mine started to look like that after a minute. After 2 minutes the whole screen was a mass of cyan and magenta blocks and eventually it would crash the computer.

    acutely, its apple who makes those cards, ATI supplies parts, and apple assembles it, puts some compatibility chips and ROM.
