Screen flashing while playing 3D Games like World of Warcraft.

Hello, im playing WoW (World of Warcraft), And about a week ago i got myself a problem... A major problem. While i was playing World of Warcraft, my screen started to flash like ____. I mean, it was really ''____''... All the graphics where in wrong place. I dont know what to do... I've re-installed my Radeon Series, TWICE... Nothing heappend. I've re-installed DirectX... Nothing heappend...  I've contacted some other forums, but they didint really help alot. They suggested i installed the Radeon series (My graphic-card is ATI Radeon X600 pro), So i installed the series. And then again nothing heappend. Then someone said the graphic card could be overheated. Im very sure that not it. And this problems is not only when i play World of Warcraft. Its when i play ANY games that require 3D graphics, like CSS (Counterstrike Course) or any souch. I have no idea what to do, and i was hoping anyone could help me with that. If necessary i've got Teamviewer. 

Here's some other pics that MIGHT help... (Notice the yellow markers) (This is what the game looks like.)
