Just wanted to give you all a quick update on this issue I had. I purchased a replacement LCD on ebay for right around a hundred bucks and it worked perfect. So if you have a similar problem, try taking a screen grab (shift+command+4) and if the picture comes out clean without the glitch you are seeing, it's probably not the graphics card and can be fixed reasonably. Also, plugging in an external display will help you rule out the graphics card, if the external looks perfect without the glitch that shows up on the laptop display, probably the ribbon cable or LCD itself. Thanks again for your help chscag!
