R7 260x flickering issue

Hi Guys,

 

I've been having issues with my GPU ever since i bought it in late 2014. And now it seems time for me to ask some questions. I've tried everything from reinstalling drivers, windows and games. But the issue seems to continue happening and getting worse over time. It seems to me that it's a hardware issue. I will attach two links of video's i just shot that clarifies the issues that I'm having. next to this, counter strike just crashes and windows seems to flicker every now and then.

 

I'd like to know if there is a solution to this problem or if the GPU is just crap and I should buy a new (non AMD) one.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Wouter
