Faulty GTX480 Fixable?

Just looking at buying a faulty card but wanted to know what your guys thoughts are about it being fixable.
Its a gtx480. The guy said that he was playing crysis on it when it a BSOD showed for a split second and trip power supply making it go into protect mode (short circuit). From the pic it looks like a mosfet. If it isnt what chip is it and is it easy to replace?

Heres whats happened:


I think this is were it is on the PCB:



Thanks

  1. Ok first of all your pics don't work.

    Secondly, if the card was defective, you would return it for a new one. Why would someone sell you a card that didn't work when it's still under warranty?

    Sounds like maybe he overclocked it too far, burnt it up, and the manufacturer wouldn't replace it due to his overclocking. I wouldn't touch it with a 10ft. pole.
