I'd say go for it...

I baked a 9800GT the other day and it tasted great!

It actually did bring it back to life though, it was having the same issues you described in your original post.

Just disassemble the card, clean the TIM off the GPU with some isopropyl alcohol, rest it on four tin foil balls, lay it on a baking pan and bake it on 385 for 10 minutes. When it's done, don't eat it, let it cool for 25-30 minutes. Should solve the problems you're having. :)

Good luck!

Don't move the card! Things will fall off.... just turn the oven off and open the door to let it cool.
