Seven New Capacitors, some desoldering (one replacement solder sucker), and a little soldering back and the card is better than new. Note the 10V upgrade too. They’re a little tall, but AGP cards usually have plenty of room. The extra headroom cost several cents.
If you discover that your silvery FZ (saicon) caps are blown up, just replace em. It’s part of the adventure of modern computing.
