Default Am I screwed? (NVRM: Xid)

The day before yesterday I updated a lot of programs and everything went well. I could use my computer normally yesterday but today when I started it I could not play movies if the player used xvideo. I found the following errors in logs:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): The NVIDIA X driver has encountered too many errors. Falling
(WW) NVIDIA(0): back to legacy PCI mode.
and dmesg:
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0000 01019700 00004097 00001754 00000000 00000002
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 1, Channel 00000000 Method 00000060 Data 0101020c (lots of these)

I'm guessing this is a hardware error. I had an old geforce 2 card which hung my Xserver with some Xid error in the syslog and I had to replace the card to fix the error. I have not made any hardware changes or software changes since the computer was working. Everything seems to work except xvideo. I get a blank video player and an unresponsive system when I try. Are there any test I could run or should I just look for a new card?

System info:
amd x2, smp system
GeForce 6600LE PCIe (passive cooling)
dist gentoo
mobo asus a8n-sli premium
