Y510P SLI Graphics Card Burned

Just wanted to let others know about the SLI Graphics Card. All of a sudden my pc shutdown while viewing a Youtube video. I smelled some weird burning smell coming from the computer. Wouldn't boot, eventually I pulled the second graphics card on the right side of the pc. Looked at it and there was major burn spot on it. Started up the PC and it was fine without the graphics card. There must be some sort of overheating issue and they are defective. I rarely play games on this pc and this occured simply watching a youtube video which seems really odd. I do have two monitors hooked up to the system.

Sorry I did not. I simply chucked the card. I looked into finding a replacement but could not find one online :-(

I also looked into finding a dvd/blu-ray drive instead but had similar problems finding any parts.
