In pieces: T61 14.1" widescreen kept for spare parts
Boards with the the Intel graphics have no "GPU" failure issues.
As far as your NVIDIA options go the best available would be the NVS 140M for that format. None of the other motherboards (14.1" 4:3 and 15.4" 16:10) are compatible replacements and those are the ones that have the more powerful GPU options, the 15.4" T61p by a far margin.

I haven't seen any NVS 140 failures personally on the 14.1" 16:10 T61s, out of maybe 50 or 60 that my clients had in service (up until as recently as about 2 years ago).
I have 4 T61p systems with the 570 - 1 is an early build 14.1" 4:3 that just about never gets used. The rest are a 15.4s - one is the one I bought new in 10/07 that I retired (but kept) once it started showing early signs of failure (but still works for light duty), there's another that I built with a newer GPU (but not able to ID the system build date, so there is ambiguity over whether it is a revised GPU or not) and my last is based on a refurbished ~2010 board that doesn't have the defect.
