Question Is my 6800 GT dead?

Hi! Long time lurker, first time poster here

After a long session of ETQW my system hang completely (besides that it was very loud, I think that it was video card fan spinning at max speed).
After reboot, Windows boot screen was covered with vertical, dotted lines, after that monitor goes black...

BIOS screen was covered with similar vertical, dotted lines, but Windows safe mode, strangely, has no graphical corruption.

So, does that mean that the memory on the card was damaged due to overheating?
Is there anything that can be done?
