Graphics Card dead?

Never had a graphics card die on me but this is what happened...

Playing l4d2 then I get black screen and finally horizontal lines. I reboot and graphic card will no longer display anything. Guess my graphics card died...?

I swapped graphics cards and everything displays perfectly.

Also XFX support sucks. I'll be making a rant thread about them later.... 1 week no reply.....

XFX ATI 5770 about 2 weeks old- never had any overheating issues or black screens/horizontal lines before this.... I'm pretty sure my card didn't overheat b/c I have CPUIZ hardware moniter running 24/7 and didn't notice any abnormal readings.

    If it don't post while every thing you throw at it runs then the card is a brick and nag them till they reply. That is how I got a replacement for my XFX780i.

    NP :) They are some times can be useless but good old nagging helps to at least get a response.
