probably permanantly. If it still works normally other than that I'd say stick with it, unless it's within a 30 day return policy or a warranty of the sorts then I'd RMA it for replacement.

If it overheated, it's no good anymore...

Since that PC is old, best would be to grab a used video card from some used Pc shop part or a friend. If you have another one, use that other one.

If it still works, it's not completely dead. The fuzzy display is probably because of the card. If you have another one that you want to use, use it. But I would stick with the fuzzy display occasionally if it played games better.
