Vertical lines on my screen:
It happends like once in 2-3 days, at random really.
Note: I still hear audio and I can still talk to people on Skype, so it is video related.

I've googled and searched for some time regarding this issue and there aren't really any definitive solutions to the problem. Some say it is caused by flash player's hardware acceleration, but I disabled that. I'm not sure if a RMA is going to solve the problem. My previous PC had a similar problem (amd 4870), but I don't really believe that I bought two faulty cards in a row, since the hardware and windows installs are completely different.
