Hi to all.

I have a 17'' macbook pro (early 2011), used mainly for video editing work.
The discrete graphic card -AMD Radeon HD 6750M- seems to be almost dead
(blue screen with lines while trying to work on mocha, screen freezes when
I switch to the discrete graphics card through gfxcard status).
Mac is working properly, if the integrated card is selected.

Does anyone know the costs on replacing it?
Can they replace the graphics card alone, or do they have to
replace the whole logic board?

I'm trying to consider my options, and having to pay for a
logic board replacement seems like a nightmare right now...
