Graphics card dies few days after I start streaming High def...Coincidence

I have an Pallet 8800GTX and it's been working fine for the last 4 months. However, 3 days after I stream high def using an HDMI cable (with a DVI to HDMI convertor), the graphics card shows garbage on the screen and dies. I have to wait 2 weeks for a replacement and was wondering whether anyone can shed light on this. Is it just a coincidence?

Sounds like your card has "overheated". This happened to mine, a GeForce 7900, a while back. Upon investigation, the fan was not working properly causing the card to slowly cook...not good :thumbsdow

Thanks for that. Even when there was no output on the screen, the fan was still spinning but maybe not working to it's potential.
