I don't think

I don't think it's the monitor. There is basically only one way a monitor can fail with regards to a video card, and that's to simply not display anything at all.
From what you've said, I still think the problem is that the video card is overheating. It then locks up, sending a constant static image to the monitor. So even though the computer is functioning normally, you aren't receiving any visual feedback of this, which is our primary means of determining if something is wrong.
Just because there is a fan on the video card doesn't mean it's getting sufficient air flow to keep it properly cooled. If possible, try moving any other add-on cards as far away from the video card as possible. Maybe even take one out temporarily if you can live without it for a couple of hours. See if moving the other cards down a slot or two from the video card helps any.
