GPU or Motherboard?

Gtx 1070
i5 4690k
16 gigs corsair ram

I have an issue with red blue and green pixels on my screen they are mostly up and down. Also when I open the start menu the buttons seem to glitch out and stretch out almost but I have to move my mouse over an icon. I have switched graphics cards, monitors, cords, and even motherboard pcie slots even reinstalling drivers and windows os. I think it may be the psu considering it is a Rosewill 700w that i have had for
4 years not even bronze certified it could also be a bad mobo? Maybe? I'm not too sure so let me know on what you think I should do before I buy a new psu. (Gpu was not overclock ed at the time this issue occurred. ) Thanks.

  1. Tried another monitor and cable?

    Or try the same monitor and cable on the iGPU in your i7.

    How did you make that picture?
    If with printscreen function, then that could mean vram corruption/damage.
    If with external camera, then that could be faulty cable or monitor.

    The VRAM issues looks exactly like mine but I have tried different cards and they are still there even with on-board graphics that isn't the only thing I have switch out. I have tried different Monitors, hdmi cables, graphics cards, hard drives, psus, and ram/switching slots still have the same issue. The only thing I have not changed was the motherboard and cpu because I don't have spares on hand. I also booted into Ubuntu the pixels were there too, making 100% sure that it isn't an software issue. I have even tried motherboards on-board graphics and they were still there. I'm thinking it is the mobo. I don't think a bad cpu would cause visuals on screen if it was bad but let me know what you think.

  7. If its doing it even with the IGPU, then its very likely to be the monitor or the cable. Can you show a picture of the problem on another screen?

  8. Are you using default resolution/frequency? Changing those can often create artifacts or pixel problems
