Default Splashed juice on monitor, possibly fried gfx card?

I accidentally knocked over a glass full of pink lemonade and went in my flatscreen monitor. Now i can't play games because they crash. The screen flickers while the game is up just before it has to load any high res. My guess is that when the juice splashed into the monitor, it got in the A/V cord and travelled into the hub of my graphics card and fried it. I'm still able to use the computer just fine, just no games.

I guess i should also mentioned that NOTHING touched the tower, in or out. So the computer was unharmed from the juice.

I really doubt you fried the video card like that. I don't think there's near enough voltage in that DVI cable to fry anything, but I suppose anything is possible

Update: I've been to many boards, and 100% of people with beginner to expert all said it is nearly impossible to fry my graphics cards by what happened...I bought a new graphics card and it fixed the issue. The computer techs at a local store knew exactly that it was the videocard.
