Hello

Colored squares usually means the card is failing. Do you get the odd colors during the boot sequence?

I concur with veeg, hardware is failing.
you could remove the GPU, wipe it down with a brush and wipe the contacts both on the card and in the mobo slot.
reseat it and see how that goes.

if it only happened during YouTube, I would suggest upgrading your browser to the latest version or even trying another browser to verify that fact.
but since you say it's also durng games, that would suggest a faulty graphics card to me.
