Default Video Card Burnout

I was wondering that if my video card like "died" cease to function...would i only have to replace that or would i have to replace more than that?

Also could i theoretically move parts from a dell xps 400 to a different system??

the system is about 2 1/2 years old. I would move the mobo, processor, harddrive, and possibly ram.

cpu hdd and ram you can move no problem. the mobo is most likely a Dell specific board so you'll have a hard time moving that without doing some mods to the new case.

for a second i thought u where making a thread about nossboost or veedubb. anyway your video card rarely takes another part with it when it dies, alltho if you power suply took out your gpu then your cpu mobo and ram could be fried. and you could move yoru system if you fidn another btx case.

no btx is a diferent mounting method, dell uses btx mother boards so you will need a btx case.
