I can find 6 of them listed on used market, but lets jump on the problem.
Fortnite isnt a game that will stress your GPU so much that it dies from overheating.
It sounds like a PSU issue in my opinion.
List full pc specs,including the exact make/model of the psu.
Have you ever had any problems with this card before?
If yes list them.
Have you ever monitored the temps?
Even before the problem,what were the idle temps of cpu and gpu?
