    Recently My Sapphire R9 270X 2GB DDR5 has been damaged.
    The Screens been Shattered and when I tried to install the GPU Driver, the System freezes..

    My Warranty has been gone in August 04,2016.

    So, I need Experts Opinion About That.
    Should I Repair this?
    If I Repaired that, What chance it has to survive?

    Your help, Opinions are Most Welcome.
    Because only this gaming community understand how much value a gpu can carry in a gamers life.

    Thnx in Advance..

    You could try to take it to a friend's pc and see if the driver installation still fails. That, or write this off as a loss and save up for a new gpu.

    Curious. What version of drivers were you using when it happened? You wouldn't happen to be on one of the earliest releases of Crimson Drivers, would you?
