OK: I put together a new rig a few months ago- Q6600, P5K Deluxe, Enermax galaxy 1000, Watercooling, and 8800GTX from BFG.

A little while ago, the 8800GTX failed on me. Only indication I had was that games started crashing after 10 or so minutes of play. A few reboots later, the system would turn on, but refuse to boot. The screen wouldn't come on.

I borrowed a 8600 GT from a friend to use while RMAing the 8800. The card worked fine, but then a week later it started doing exactly the same crap, with the same final result. Now it's being RMA'ed tomorrow. Could the problem be my motherboard? I didn't clear out my overclock settings after the first card went bad. Could this have killed the card?

And did you try the 8600GT back in your friends computer?

Good call, if it dosent work back in the original system then you could have a failing component damaging the video card.
