I just recently read this article on Tomshardware.com. Its a really interesting option when your warranty wears out and the manufacture recommends replacing the motherboard. PCB soldering is not a walk in the park but 15 bucks instead of 70-100 bucks is allot cheaper.

I've been doing repairs for years on machinery. It takes practice but it's relatively easy. The most important thing is the correct tools. A nice de-soldering tool like what's in the pic isn't cheap. I probably got 20 -30 different solder tips. Usually the hardest part is finding the correct replacement part
