Sounds like the memory may be faulty on your graphics card, but it can depend on what kind of lines and blobs you are seeing.
It's also possible that you need the hardware drivers reinstalling, as a faulty driver can sometimes cause what's known as 'artifacts' in graphics. So when playing 3D type games, you can see through parts of walls that should be solid, or you may see colours drifiting etc.
Most graphics cards have a selection of memory chips built onto them. If one chip starts to go faulty, the card will still work, but the picture information stored in that chip becomes wrong. So colours are not as they should be, and graphics can appear to vanish or move (or become just lines), although it's rare that the actual PC will crash because of the problem. It will just try to show whatever picture it thinks is right.
If possible, check that your graphics cards fan is spinning as it should be (if you're not familiar with this kind of thing, find a friend who has some knowledge of these things - it's really a quite simple thing to check). The fan should be free of fluff and dust, and be spinning silently, very very fast.
If the fan is not spinning fast enough (or they can even stop spinning completely), the chip underneath will overheat very easily (especially when a lot of moving graphics are on the screen), and the graphics can become all confused. Eventually, if that overheating continues, the chip will become damaged inside.
While the fan is being checked, it may also be helpful to remove the card and refit it, as they can occasionally get a bad connection in the AGP/PCI-EXPRESS slot.
If it's the main memory chip at fault on a graphics card, they are near impossible to fix (far too expensive for an engineering company to manually repair), and it's easier to just buy a new graphics card instead.
Remember that although a graphics card may appear to be just perfect when doing your usual PC activities, that can be because your PC desktop will only need to use a single memory chip for its picture, so it's not accessing the faulty chip yet. But games will instantly start to use all of the available chips, hence the problem starts to show up.
Hope that info helps.

Wii game that has color distortion and lines when playing after one hour.


This is a classic glitch. This is most likely caused by your Wii being old/ out of date, because sometimes when video games become really old and out of date, they start glitching and weird things happen. This is a perfect example. You may not be able to fix this problem, but hey, nothing's impossible.
