Default Blown Bad Caps

So this old eVGA Geforce 7300GS came out of my dads PC after he heard 2 pops on 2 separate occasions which he ignored. He thought it was something else since there was nothing wrong with his PC until one day the video just started shifting and that's when I found out it was this card.

I thought these were solid polymer caps but after some research, these are only the normal electrolytic caps without a sleeve and there are K vents at the top. Apparently these caps are from the Sacon FZ series which are low quality. I thought they look like solid caps but they are not.
