Stick them in an airing cupboard and let them dry out.

Use compressed air and a little rubbing alcohol. The alcohol will remove any contaminants on the card as well as help dry the card. It evaporates faster than water. I have been successful a couple of times. Powering it right back up is a bad thing.

Clean it and dry it and let it set for a couple of days....

I once watched water flow ore my mommy board and raced to shut her down...didn't make it, shut herself down...hard...

Took her apart.... let her dry, put her together... BINGO!! No promises, but I'd say your chances are good of walking away from this one... best wishes!

got it all sat infront of a radiator at the moment. Think there may be water in the PCI-E slot making the signal from the gfx card be interupted. Well thats what I am hoping for anyway! Whens the 9800 out?
