It may be worthwhile looking on Ebay for a second hand one, could be cheaper than getting it repaired.

I know very little about using two graphics cards but NVIDIA does offer the flexibility to run graphics cards with different sized memory by using CoolBits. Using CoolBits (value set to 18), you can force both of the cards to use the lower of the two memory sizes and operate them together in SLI mode. When dissimilar memory sizes are enabled to work together using CoolBits, the effective memory size for each card becomes the smaller of the memory sizes.
I found this using Google so this is the total extent of my "knowledge" Hope it helps ! Try a Google search on "Coolbits" for more detailed info.
