    Question Will I Repair My Bad GPU or Buy a New One?

    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?

    Don't even bother, it will take a lot of dough to fix it and then it still has zero warranty so it can get damaged again.
