    Assuming that nothing has been blurred out by Photoshop, that looks like a graphical bug. If it is the first time you've seen it, it could be nothing. However, if it starts appears more often you could have a defective GPU.

    PS: Stop surfing on the eastern side of Cinnabar Island. You'll get beaten up by a level 100 Snorlax.

    Looks like your GPU got sick and threw up a bit.

    Has this happened before? Did it go away when you scrolled down a bit?

    Looks like it doesn't like your listing..

    But really, looks like a GPU hiccup.

    Haha, I'm more concerned about the Snorlax with the HP bar off the screen. :D

    But yeah I don't have Photoshop so nothing's blurred. I troubleshooted the RAM issue, and it doesn't seem to be that. :( I dunno what it could be, I've tried the HDD too. :p I've tried putting back the HDD and RAM that were stock, same issue.

    Use it to beat the Elite 4 and the Champ and then release it.

    it's warning you not to sell!

    Looks like a GPU issue. I had a similar issue years ago, and it turned out to be the GPU. Do you still have Apple Care?

    I have had similar issues since upgrading to Mountain Lion. It has only affected Mail, and has only happened a couple of times. In both instances, quitting mail and restarting it has fixed the issue. I didn't think anything of it, and assumed it to be a bug in the new version of Mail

    There's a good chance it's not a defective GPU.

    OP, are you running Mountain Lion? Ever since both myself and my friend updated from Lion, we have been getting these graphical bugs in Mail. If these odd glitches occur elsewhere, then you might actually have a problem. Otherwise, just wait for 10.8.1 and see if your issues are solved.

    If closing mail and reopening mail doesn't work, try feeding it a Rare candy - that usually evolves it into a Rhydon.

    Same thing used to happen to me quite a bit with Activity Monitor and my old Macbook's X3100. Sometimes stuff doesn't want to cooperate with integrated cards.
