So lightning hit my house and now something is fried. Im thinking its motherboard or gpu. So I want to replace the gou to see if the system works. Is it safe to replace the gpu?
 
Yeah, just turn the system off, unplug the system, and then you're good to replace the GPU.

If you wondering if the new GPU will be safe I would say it should be. A power surge can damage components, but a damaged motherboard shouldn't damage a gpu on its own.

I had to bet money I would say it is your mobo that is dead.
