Default Help with video

P4 3.0
Asus P4s800 mainboard
1 GB Ram
GeForce 6800 Gt Video Card

I have been using this system for a while but it just started having this problem. The computer will be running fine then all of a sudden the screen will either go blank, turn fuzzy, or may even look like a checkered board. When you try to restart it will either start or it will try to start then go black. When the computer does start it will only run for a few minutes before it screws up.

Ok when I start it in safe mode it will run all day and be fine so I uninstalled the drivers for the video card and now it is running fine. I have tried different drivers but just as soon as I load the drivers it will mess up again. I have come to the conclusion that the card is bad but I want some other oppinions before I spend the money for new one. Thanks for any help.
