Bulging capacitor on nvidia FX5500

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I bought an AGP card (nvidia geforce FX5500) for a computer with an AGP slot in it 2 years ago and today when I decided to look around in my computer I noticed that it has a couple of capacitors that are bulging.
All the capacitors on the card look like solid capacitors but I am covinced that these capacitors are not solid.
There are a total of 5 capacitors on the card and I am looking to replace all.
There are 4 capacitors labeled "FZ88 470 16V" and 1 capacitor labeled "FZ89 1500 63V".

So my main question is who made these capacitors?

My next question is what capacitors should I replace these with? I need capacitors which are small enough so that it wont make my graphics card take up two slots.

I know this isn't what you asked for, but for the price of the caps and shipping you can get a "new" card.

If the card is working properly you shouldn't be worrying about replacing anything.
If you decide you must replace them, look on ebay for the second and third number from each cap.
470uf 16V
1500uf 63V
uf stands for Microfarad
look for ones with the same length and lead diameter as the ones on your card.
