I picked up my mbp from its second logic board replacement within a few months. It was still under warranty from the first depot repair. Anyway, when picking it up the genius told me that if I have ANY problems, to come back in and they will most likely be able to offer a more permanent solution. He also volunteered the info that they are aware of gpu issues with this model but he was technically not supposed to mention any of this to me. Anyway, my suggestion is pay for the depot repair so you have a warranty and if you continue to have problems you'll most likely get yourself a newer replacement.
