what would cause blown caps on a graphics card?
I picked up a pile of parts from a friend, and one of them is a 7600GT with blown caps. I'll probably fix it if only for the practice, but I'm curious, what would cause the caps to blow on a graphics card? Power problems?
Age most likely.
Actually it's probably NOT age.
The 7600 is the right age to have counterfeit caps in it :

that and or dude maxed it out mhz wise 24/7.
do make a page with the project,be cool to see ya in action.
love it when old hw is resurrected hehe
could also be that PSU failed. I have seen that when an Antec SP450 died took with it the whole system and blown the caps on a 7300GT, that silent model from Asus. the whole config was like 5 years old.
It was a huge thing back in the day, with motherboards dying, etc.
Let me know what value capacitors you need FlyingFish and I may be able to supply them..... :thumb:
