My PC has started crashing and displaying a pixelated screen. I am assuming its simply a video card issue, but looking to get some verification please - as I don't have a spare card, and hoping for a cheap fix!!.
The distorted screen (as per attached photos) can be seen in BIOS, at Win10 prompt, and finally after trying to logon, where PC crashes. Between the logon screen and the crash itself, the screen goes on/off, displays various patterns etc etc.
Have tried leaving PC at the logon screen for about 10 mins, and it doesn't crash and stays running
Was wondering if its power related as I did have an issue a few weeks back, where after PC was powered on, it would start to boot, but would then just power itself down. It did this 5-6 times before seemingly fixing itself.
Have tried disconnecting 2 internal DVD drives (just leaving 1 HDD), but no difference.
Graphics card is a Gigabyte GV-R487D5-1GD and the system has a 700w total power output PSU
Would appreciate any thoughts/comments before I go out and get another graphics card.

Monitor is fine as works with laptop. Problem exists just going into BIOS where I get lines and odd marks across the screen, so am assuming not a driver issue. When booting to Win10 prompt the screen becomes filled with coloured squares and a very 'snowy' looking screen - so card is producing output, but just with massive interference
