    Recently, I've been having a lot of weird graphical glitches on my MacBook Pro.

    I get garbled text a lot, and when I drag Finder windows around, I get remnants of old window positions all over my desktop. Also, in Photoshop, I get all sorts of glitches. Dragging brushes around and such, random pieces of old layers and text appear all over my document.

    Here are couple screenshots to show you what I mean on some of these errors.

    Has anyone else experienced problems such as these? Could it be a bad graphics card, or something else?

    Call Apple up. Looks like a video card problem (possibly bad memory modules for the video card, but it could also be a bad GPU problem too).

    Next time I'm in Denver, I will run by the Apple Store and see what they say.

    Anyone else have tips or theories?
