Gigabyte R9 380 {2GB} fan is failing, should I replace the fan or get a whole new gpu?

Hello, as the title says I have a Gigabyte R9 380 gpu and had it for about a year, and recently I noticed that the fan near the back of the case makes a ticking sound when the speeds go at or above 50%.

This is my first graphics card I ever own so I am not sure how to replace the fan or even if I can replace the fan on an aftermarket cooler.

What are your guy's thoughts? Thanks

    Depends what you're using it for, if for light gaming, just replace the fans. But for more heavy gaming, I'd say get a new card since the 2 gig Vram will pull you behind. IF the new card is your case I'd say an RX 470 or 480 since they just had price drops anyway.
