Is my card fubar?


So here are some pics of what I get when I boot up sometimes,, more often here lately.. Do you all think it could be the v.card? I swapped out ram and cpu.. I don't have another pci-e mb so I didn't swap out that.
This is what I get first..

I haven't messed with anything on the card.. I ran it at stock/BFG Oc speeds..
Actually the temp didn't get above 58c playing games, 53 idle.

OnDborder, I accidentally put 5v through the mem on a 9800pro once! It ended up looking like those pictures, you could see the screen pattern changing as it went through the bios and into windows but couldn't make anything out. I have even tried blind bios flashes and have come to the conclusion that the memory/memory controller had burnt out.

I hope it's a corrupt bios for your sake, is it still under warranty? if so RMA it, if not can you try in a friends pc? Last resort if it's out of warranty would be to try a blind flash unless you have a PCI card lying around.

good luck

Ya, I put a video pci card in and no problems.. Re-booted a half dozen times with no problems.
You put 5volts to the graphics card? I wouldn't even know how to do that. No I ran it bfg/oc stock.
It's got a "lifetime" warranty.

If you didn't do anything to tweak the card, call up BFG and RMA it.
