Default leadtek 6600gt maybe overheated and broke

Almost a year ago I was on here asking about my msi 6600gt that was overheating the result of which was an rma for a leadtek 6600gt because all the msi ones in the store were overheating.

Anyway, I haven't really had a chance to play any games for longer than a few minutes until now. I was playing 7 sins for a couple of hours when my computer froze. Now every game I try looks like the attachment.

I have an sli setup so when that's on the black marks are only on half the screen and when I just use the good card they're gone completely.

The idle temperature for the broke card was 58 so I figure the card probably overheated and now there's nothing I can do. I tried putting a zalman vf700cu on it and it brought the idle temp down to 37 but the black marks are still there. I haven't tried measuring the load temp.

The only thing I haven't done is try different drivers but since one card works I figure that won't help. Does anyone have any suggestions before I go out and get a new card. Thanks.
