2011 27 iMac 6970m dying?

I fear i know the answer, but maybe someone here has more knowledge.
I started seeing some really odd distortions during Starcraft 2, and now the game is not playable. I can not recreate this in OSX ML, or watching movies, or any other apps, but during other games such as SWKOR i get the same problem.

27 imac, 3.4 i7, 16gb ram
6970m 2gb option. osx 10.8.2

If the video card is bad... does my SSD installation affect my applecare? I did not take off any "warranty void if removed" stickers, but curious if anyone else who has added or modified disc has tried to use applecare after.

thanks!

Did you take out the HD and add a SSD or do you just add SSD behind optical drive?

added a Samsung SSD behind optical

Forgot to mention, The iMac turned off two different times.

One of the times i heard a distinct "pop", however, it powered itself right back up, without me touching it
