What does this corrupted display mean? Bad video card?

Hey everyone. I have looked, but haven't found a problem similar to this. It is a desktop running Vista, hooked up to a new 60" LCD TV via hdmi. The display started freaking out and the computer would only occasionally boot up. I pulled the video card and it worked in my other pc. Dusted everything of and threw it back in the original pc. worked for a month and then started acting up again. Now it wont boot at all. The attached picture is what I get on the screen. Does it seem like a video card or something else? Any help would be appreciated before I throw money at a new card.

    Corrupted vga card memory is the most likely cause.

    You can take it apart and toss it in an oven for a home-brew reflow or buy a new part.
