This can mean that the artifacts are problems with the lead free solder and in my experience it will get worse, its usually on games that require heavy graphics then its definately the lead free solder problem and will lead to either 3rrod, e73 or e74 etc etc.
my advice is dont play it to death, keep it cool and if you want it to be ok i would do the x-clamp replacement and possibly re-solder the whole board. this is done by the use of an IR oven similar to what we use, OR you can use a normal heatgun but i dont recommend it because it can cause damage and knock fuses off the mainboard if not used properly.
if you do get it working follow advice below:
in the meantime id play it for an hour a time and make sure its not in any cupboard or anything. getting something like an intercooler can help. We use something called SystemX which cures this type of problem.
See how you go.
