Re: video card failing?
Well I have all ways thought that the motherboard was the problem. Would this type of problem come and go? Like well one day it would act up and then be good for a month or so?
About the video card, I can always put my old X800 (crossfire edition, still have no idea why I got that model) PCI Express card back in to the PCI Express slot (like how it was a few years ago).
I used memtest86+ tons of times in the past so yeah I boot it and just let it run for 2 passes.

We don't know what the root cause of the problem is, so it's hard to say whether or not the issue can come and go. But yes, generally speaking with circuits and ICs and things like VRMs, an issue can indeed "come and go" depending on what the real (scientific) root cause is.
How would you insert a PCI Express card into an AGP slot? I was under the impression your motherboard only has an AGP slot, and I'm not aware of any motherboards that offer both PCI Express and AGP slots (I wouldn't be surprised if one existed, but still).
Let me know about my last paragraph too, please.
