We routinely experience burned out ATI chips exactly like this.  Oddly,
Dell always acts surprised when we call it in, but it *must* be rather
commonplace.  At least they replace the core without too much arguing.

Be aware there's a recall on some 1650's, which require the motherboard
to be swapped out.  I don't know if the two are related, but you might
want to call Dell Support to see if your server falls within that
range.  

BTW, nice photos.
