Any memory testers for NVIDIA video cards' RAM?

    Just curious. Does one exist? I know memtest products exist for regular
    computer RAM. How about video card RAM like NVIDIA GeForce cards? I wonder
    if my new XFX GeForce 6800's 128 MB is defective.

    Thank you in advance. :)

    Defective video card ram generally causes the card to malfunction, such as
    Works in VGA only
    Artifacts in display.
    Video malfunctions in some manner
    Bios tests fail with beeps or shows less than installed video ram

    I'm sure that the card Mfr has a test method. The old SVGA cards had such
    utilities, since the RAM was often plug in.
