Dying Video Card Threat To System?

Would a confirmed dying video card pose a threat to the rest of the computer system? Could a bad video card cause damage to other system components like the monitor, speakers, mouse, keyboard, motherboard, thus "tainting" them and making them risky to use on brand new components for a new computer? Thank you.

  1. Unless the capacitors are bad, you shouldn't have to worry about it.
    Capacitors can explode. Rarely.
    A dieing power supply might be a danger to the system.
  2. Most capacitors will vent rather than explode today.
