There is a way to fix the GPU issue with Apple care! I have done it successfully twice with 2 identical MacBook Pro machines:

Late 2008 Model

2.6Ghz Core 2 Duo

Nvidia 8600GT 512Mb

17" HighRes 1920x1200 display

Basically you have to completely remove the logic board from the machine, which is not too difficult. Then pre-heat your oven to 220 degrees.

Use foil, and make little legs on a baking tray.

Place the logic board, GPU up on the legs.

Put in the oven, and decrease temperature to 200 degrees.

Wait 7 minutes...

Remove, allow to cool. And re-fit, making sure EVERYTHING is properly connected.

No joke, worked both times!

The first used as a media machine is running perfectly! The second used everyday has begun to show issues, but has been under intense graphical stress a great deal more than the first.(Left 4 Dead 2 at full resolution).

There are youtube instructions! Check them out!
