Hi I think my card had over heated it is a Radeon 5870 from Dell. My computer started to change a few days ago giving me a white screen on both monitors and both were pixalated. i had my friend whos a programmer check it and he beleive it is the graphics card. is there a way to find out without having to take the card out of my spare computer to test it?

If it is is the card is the Radeon R9 able to work in a Dell Studeo XPS 9100?

Take out the card and blow out the dust from behind the fan and inspec for damage then put it back in and if you don't get any picture then the card is toast.
