Also, I it doesn't look like it comes with dust covers. That's what killed my 8800 GTX. Now I have dust covers on all of my intakes.
As I said to jdreyer, the 8800 had a high failure rate. That's at least 3 of us in this thread who've had a 8800 die, and I personally know a couple other people who had dead 8800/9800 cards. Dust is bad, but I doubt it was what caused your card to fail.

The cards could actually be temporarily revived by baking them in an oven to reflow the solder.
