    Over the past couple of days I've noticed that while doing anything graphically intensive - such as playing a game - my screen will twitch and show little lines for less than a second before appearing normal again. I've hooked up my Macbook Pro (15" i5 330m) to an external monitor and the same thing still happens.

    My last computer had a similar problem right before its graphics card totally died, but I just want to make sure this is the same thing before I contact Apple.

    So does this sound like a graphics issue or is something else wrong?
