It's a capacitor and yes, it is possible to replace it. You just need to find someone with the tools to work on SMD-components.

and someone who can figure out what value that capacitor had..

 

but yeah, it's a relatively easy fix.

 

on that note, it's possible that the card will run without that cap being there at all.

Sure, if one wanted to be perfectionist about it, but most of the time getting the exact value right is not that important; just find a cap of similar size nearby, check its value and more-or-less match it -- typically works fine. Manufacturers tend to buy specific values in fricking enormous quantities instead of buying every possible value, so a capacitor of the same size is also often the same value.
