Is it worth repairing overheated HP Pavillion DV6000 series?

Hi, my HP Pavilion DV6000 series laptop overheated and damaged the graphics card. The tech says that it is probably not worth repairing the laptop as the card itself costs around $300 plus the labor. He also said that the card is part of the motherboard, so I'd have to replace the motherboard as well.
In addition to the cost, he said that this laptop series has inherent serious problems with overheating.
So, in his opinion, the new card could get fried in the following six month after the install.
Has anybody else tried fixing their overheated HP Pavilion DV6000 series with a damaged graphics card?
