    Here is a picture of my graphic card, do you think it's totally dead and i buy a new one or do you think i can repair it with the adequate parts and tools ? Thank you for your answers. WIN_20170124_00_01_19_Pro.jpg

    Welcome to EP.
    Unless you can easily identify all the dead parts and can cheaply source replacements, have an infinite amount of free time and the skills to remove and solder SMD parts, just buy a new one :) .

    and that is only the damage you can see .... it's most likely a multilayer board and it is highly probable other layers have also been damage

    I wouldn't even dream of trying to repair this and I have been doing electronics for 45 yrs

    Hahaha thank you for your answers everyone. I will throw it away or resell for spare parts. Though i've no idea how much and where. I'm already planning on buying a new graphic card.

    I usually try to repair almost *everything* but if I come across a board like this, I throw it away. You don't know how many "hidden" traces are burned inside (100% positive its a multi(>2)layer board
