Death of a Graphics Card?

I'm getting irritating artifacts on my screen:


Anyone seen this before? I've got a dual G5 Mac with an ATI X800 XT card and I figger that's dying.

Overheating, maybe. The onboard fans get sticky after a few years and may need cleaning.

Also, my CAPTCHA text is 'healig' for this comment. Portentious!

Yeah, I've removed the card and blown the dust out. No real improvements yet.
