My monitor screen shows random green and purple pixels. The green pixels are mostly concentrated on the left hand side of the screen, whereas the purple pixels appear just anywhere. The graphic card specifications are at : Clock 589MHz, Memory 500MHz and Shader 1402MHz. I overclocked the card at somewhat 50-75 and sometimes 90MHz more than the default clock settings. I never really stressed the card and kept it underclocked whenever it wasn't required. The temperatures were normally around 51-59C. I have kept 3 fans in the cabinet close to the card to maintain the tempertures.The drivers are also updated. The pixels appear in normal web browsing and while watching movies as well. Please help.

GPU is about to die. Is it a Zotac Synergie Edition?

I don't think its dieing. The concentration of the pixels has somewhat decreased to a good extent. Still I think they are very much vulnerable. So I would like to know any possible measures to avoid them.
P.S. I am not sure about the Zotac Synergy thing. I don't think its a Zotac card. It has a Point Of View logo on it.

1] Re seat the card.
2] Check the card on another PC.
3] Check the Connecting wires ,try using a different cable and check.
4} If symptoms exist...RMA, if within warranty.
