If you've a 2012 model, then you're still under warranty - take the machine to your local Apple Store or an AASP and have them fix it.

Thanks for your reply Clinton, but i have a 2010 model, no warranty
I just realized that I put on the original post that it was a 2012, sorry about that, its a 2010

Oh, well that's a different story - you may have the dreaded 2010 model failing NVIDIA card - see http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4088?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US.
You should be able to get a free logic board replacement to fix the issue. Use the "Contact" link on the site that I provided and get the ball rolling!

Thank you Clinton, I went to the Apple service center today and they ran their diagnostic test and found out that the graphics card was indeed failing! They will replace the logic board for free, I probably wouldn't have found out about it if you hadn't suggested it! I don't have warranty and in a couple of months would be the 3 year replacement period. So again, thank you! Hope this thread helps future people having the same problem.
