Default Weird glitching, not sure what it is

Whenever I load up any game, sometimes I"ll notice some very minor glitching. I'm not sure if this is entirely normal or of it's a bug. I have a 6800gt. I have included a picture. I don't think its an overheating issue because sometimes it happens immediately when the game starts. This doesn't happen in movies or on the desktop. Very strange.

Here is a picture:

Does it get any worse than that? It almost does look like a heat issue or bad video memory.

No it doesn't really get that bad. Its mostly noticable on black surfaces, which is why I opened that black window. If it is a heat issue, then it's new to me. I think the 6800gt does run a bit hot, idles at around 66 and goes up to around 70-76 when playing a game, is that bad? Don't know if the memory is bad, is there any way for me to check it?

edit: Seeing these as well, is it tearing?
