GeForce GTS 450 pins broken. Fixable?

Hello, My GeForce has 2 pins broken on the pci connection. The number 1(a) pin (+12v) is half the length its supposed to be and so is the number 81(b) pin (HSln(15)). My question is, is it fixable? I heard that there is a conductive tape that can be used to supplement the pins, but I have yet to find any such tape on the internet. If anybody on the forums can point me in the right direction or maybe offer another option to repair this card I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks

  1. It is probably best to replace it. They are running about $100.00:

  3. Thanks. Will do. For future use do you know about the conductive tape my coworker mentioned?
  4. How did you determine that the pins are broke ?
  5. As I mentioned previously, the pins are half the length they are supposed to be. Furthermore, the card no longer works in my computers.
