a electronics repair store will and should be able to solder that. look for one that does tv repairs ect. my old ice cream man used to solder my old bits n bobs.

What he said, i'm an EE. that's just a through hole capacitor. They're super cheap and extremely easy to replace. If it were surface mount you'd probably be screwed.

As others have said, it's just a simple through hole solid cap. If you do plan on soldering it in yourself I recommend that you watch this video:


And a few videos from this list:

You will have to desolder the leads that are still soldered to the board first which will be the tricky part. After that make sure the holes are free of solder, and then just solder in the new part. (Make sure you align the cap in the correct orientation. That pink colored band isn't just there for show.

its not 27micro farads is 2700 microfarads 16v..
2700uf is 2.7mF (whole number.000.000.000.000) --->

way too big

From what I just read and ninja edited my post is that the different materials of caps perform differently with regards to reducing frequency ripples in the signal. So its pretty much go Aluminum or study to become and EE so you can figure out what value you need of a different material.

Yes, from the description it's likely 16V, 270uF (microfarad, can't type the proper u symbol). If you have any dead mobos or gpus should be able to find a solid cap of similar value (close will work, preferably larger value if not exact), or an electrolytic cap will do the job (just higher ESR).
Cl3p20 & pizzaman are the local gpu modding & repair gurus, they would both have caps like that on hand & are great with the iron.

I already know how to solder but thanks for the video it was very helpful and interesting information.

i have attached the new cap and the meter says its not going to short out and has a good earth connection, but it isnt the same 270µF cap it is 220µF i think.
hoping it wont be a problem because i have a very reliable psu.

Wuh? GTX480's hard to find? They are all over eBay, I got mine brand new from Overclockers UK 3 months ago for £200, Don't think they sell them at that price anymore.

yeah they are like £350 on sites now, for that price i may as well buy a gtx 580.
if my gtx 480 works now i might buy another one or sell it on. ebay is a good recommendation thanks.
