I have a Geforce 8600 GT on my daughter's PC. Her pc froze the morning. After some diagnostic work, I got it to boot, but the screen had a lot of artifacts on it. It worked fine yesterday. Nothing new was loaded (to cause driver issues).

I opened up the PC to find the video card. Not knowing anything about hardware, it looks like something popped. I've attached an image.

If you think the card is garbage, what is a good replacement for it? the 9600 ?

thx...

okay, that's a good choice too.. :) 

i don't know about your PSU, so it will be safe if u choose a low power consumption card(no need for pci-e power adapter)...
