Graphics card acting weird

My Specs: i3 6100 MSI GTX 1050 Ti MSI B150M motherboard Corsair CX550M modular psu
Whenever I play a game, like Minecraft, after a few seconds, or minutes the screen goes white, purple, blue, black, and sometimes on startup I have the white lines at the top, basically a random color. I know it's not the monitor because I tried another monitor and it had the same thing displayed on it. I know it's not the power supply because I used the integrated graphics and it worked just fine. Also, it's when i play any game. I tried Rocket League and it went black. I also reset my pc using windows 10 reset my pc option

    try updating your NVIDIA drivers. Also is the card overclocked? how long has it been acting like this? what is the temp on your card under load/ idle?

    Those are signs of graphics card failure. You may need to replace it.
