I see you are using an add-on graphics card. Have you tried connecting your display to both the on-board port as well as the add-on?
Thanks for replying. Literally after looking at it I found out the issue. It looks like the DVI connection on my monitor is no longer functioning correctly. I just tried using VGA connection and issue seems to have disappeared. Video plays fine and so do any games I run on the machine. It seems odd that VGA worked though and at the same time I can't believe I didn't check this. I guess just got to obsessed with the issue that I missed this little troubleshooting step. Thanks again for taking time to read this.
