Just recently my video card died, it was over heating and was old a 9800gt so i knew it was going out, so i ordered a new video card a sapphire radeon hd 7770 ghz edition with vapor x tech, so recently i have been using tye onboard graphics card and it was working fine for a while but now when i run games (league of legends) it has started frying the vga cables, nothing noticeable on the cord just when i replace the cord it happens again, my question is if i put the new one in will it fry the video card or hurt it in anyway, i assume that the onboard is going out or the motherboard is going out, also could the motherboard have caused the old video card to go out.

"Frying" cables implies a short of some sort. Make sure nothing is sticking into the VGA socket on the mobo.

Ok i went in and checked and nothing i could see was in the socket or touching it near the mothorboard, its all rather clean and from what i remember the motherboard stayed around 30 degrees Celsius,

i would do a test with a old video card but there could be something with the board or the psu use this to see what voltage it read and compare them with your bios reading http://www.hwinfo.com/

I do remember when the 9800 gt worked it was using too much power i think it was using 130 watts and it was the 512 version which is only supposed to use like 98 watts i think.

also do as COLGeek tell you see if there is nothing that could cause short with the case or any connector on the board or in the back of her

I checked the vga port and the mothorboard theres nothing touching it or stuck inside the port, so is it safe to put the video card into the computer since i will be disabling the onboard, also if the motherboard did burn the new graphics card out would the warranty cover it?

I will work on testing an old video card in it soon but i have to get a new vga cable first.
