    Unless you are planning to upgrade real soon, get the card repaired. However 750/- is on the higher side i think.

    and i bet u didnt ask them what the problem was
    well even if u owned a multimeter maybe we could help u figure out if its the fan or the pins on the card
    guess u dun have an option
    get it done and sell it off

    see dude
    if theres a problem with ur card then its possible the pins arent supplying voltage to ur fan
    so if its just ur fan u can get those mini fans from the market for like what 50/100 bucks
    but the thing is ur gonn have to figure out how to mount them by urself. ... and the pins structure has to be the same ...
    so u see the diff ?
