Is my video card screwed?

Over the last couple of weeks I've had a couple of problems with my screen.

First when I change windows, I usual work with windows full-screen like I do on Windows, I get random squares of plain black for a few seconds like the image isn't being re-draw, although the old image is being changed to black.

Second, most noticed when load these forum pages is the screen re-draws with text and images in the wrong places like the screen grab below.

So is my video card failing?? If not what else could it be?

That screen grab you have there is just the site screwing up. We have all be experiencing it. Unless Macrumors is destroying our vid cards
