Might try taking it apart. And yes
I do still game with the card, you would be surprised that there is very little the card won't run, and it may not look pretty, but it runs fast and without hangups. Granted I run games like Civ 4 and my husband plays WoW, and neither one are exactly graphic intensive. I would like to get this up and running so I can play Starcraft 2 and Civ 5. Like I mentioned I planned on upgrading the card fairly soon, I was hoping to hold off till Black Friday to see if I can get a good deal on something nice. So if I can't get it going with some WD40 I will either replace it sooner then I would like or I will use the onboard for a while (which is what I am doing now) and just play the 360.
Is newegg considered the best place to go to pick up a new card? I am going to need a new PSU as well (another reason I have held off for so long) and I would like to get the best price for both.
