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.
