Am i running out of video memory? Whenever i play a game and its getting intense or if im traveling to a newer area (in game, no loading screen) it will sometimes lag out and then start showing lines in the hud and lag but it will say my frames are the same but there is obvious lag, there are also lines in the pause menu. the problem is fixed my exiting the game and starting it up again.(thus possibly freeing up the video memory) im not sure whats wrong, anyone know how to fix this?

That sounds more like artifacting than anything. Run ATITools' "Scan for Artifacts" test for ~30 minutes and see if any artifacts show up and/or your GPU's temperature gets too hot.

Run an hour of Furmark on stock clocks to see if your card is faulty

Okay well i ran the ATITool and i did get artifacts so i deflated the clocks and now i am re-testing it, my card came pre overclocked. so i hope the clocks they had are not bad. because i remember it happening before and that's why i overclocked it because i though it was running out of mem...aaahhhh mannn.
