Hi Fait,

I have some questions first:

1. Is the card overclocked?
2. What drivers are you using?
3. Have you checked the GPU temperatures?

I don't think its an overheat issue, most likely sounds like a software issue. Drivers could be the culprit.

Does this affect any other games, or does this only affect Source/Valve based games?

I have similar problems sometimes with Source games, such as TF2 and CS:S, however I'm not able to reproduce the errors.

Have you got another graphics card, even an old one, that you can try out?

I'm not too familiar with Nvidia drivers. Are the ones you have the latest ones?

Maybe trying to re-install DirectX might help too.

This is an odd one, but I certainly don't want to conclude that the GPU is faulty just yet.
