Most likely overheating, maybe you have too much dust in the heat sink cancelling the air flow.
If you smoke try to do it way from your pc...I have found tar clogging up broken vid cards from people I know.

When a card dies you will get dots of red blue green all over the screen.

Also make sure your not overclocking your gpu.
Return it to defaults.
Hope this helps...good luck
