    Starting this afternoon my iMac has been having problems displaying things, at first it wasn't bad as it would screw up when I minimized a window or something, and then it would fix itself and be fine for awhile. This has happened a couple times so far today, but it just got pretty bad(see screen shot I managed to get), it was stuck like that for a few minutes and now it is still glitching while I'm typing this, the menu bar will disappear and reappear, segments of the menu bar will pop up randomly in random parts of the screen, the dock is repeatedly disappearing and reappearing
    Anyone have this before, any solutions?
    I'm going to try a restart as soon as I can manage to save my project

    *still trying to upload screenshot

    Have you done a reinstall of OSX? Maybe a corrupted driver. The other thing it may be is a faulty video card. I would take it in (which is a pain as it's heavy...)
