Help! My games are being plagued with screen artifacts.

In several of the games I've been playing (Fallout 3, Mass Effect, Hitman: Blood Money) after a few minutes of gameplay "glitches" appear on the screen. These glitches look like small patches of green and sometimes purple that appear on the world geometry and disappear after a few milliseconds. If I keep playing, the glitches appear more and more frequent until I can't stand to play any more.
Interestingly enough, Source games like TF2, L4D, HL2, and Portal don't seem to be affected at all.
