Well if it does what it says it did (Melted solder points and fixed micro fractures) then i see no reason for it to fail again.

Was going to say that too. If the solder simply stress fractured then their is no reason why this resoldering job wouldn't fix it permemantly.

The idea itself would most likely have been from someone wanting to melt and resolder a joint but finding the soldering iron either too time consuming or ineffective. So attempting to heat the whole board or component. And where do you heat big things, the oven. Why the hell not. Eh,

Excactly! Although if they put it in for too hot and for too long i suppose it could damage some of the chips on the board such as memory.

Don't know if all these will work with this kind of fix, I wouldnt think it would as they appeared to be dead. Most of these are from the same seller.

NVidia GeForce 8800 Ultra 768MB - $35
NVidia GeForce 7950GX2 1GB
- $29
ASUS nVidia 7900 GT 256MB - $12.99
NVidia 8800GTX 768MB - $59.99
NVidia GeForce 8600GTS 256MB - $19.99
BFG NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT OC 512MB - Bid
NVidia GeForce 7900GTX Duo 1GB - $29
NVidia GeForce 7900GTX Duo 1GB - $39

But I think you can get some of these cards as working for about the same price. Not the cards you wanted, but maybe you can get one and try the trick just for fun.
