I would say that PCI slot is gone for sure but as for the rest of the board it may still function. All you can do is try it. I dont think RMA is a posibility due to you breaking it off. If the board will not fire up or you do not want to try it you might have to shell out for a new one.

Capacitors are large and very easy to solder back on. Give that a shot or have a friend do it for you. If it comes down to it, even take it into an electronics repair shop and i bet they will put them back on for you.

You might be lucky and just knocked out that PCI slot, something might also go wrong if you did boot up your PC.

Can you not rma it?

u can still try to repair it if u can see the pins still. and u got nothing to lose anyway since u cant RMA. but try to power it on & see. capacitors are only power holders. shouldnt be a problem.

Worst that can happen is you fry everything right...

j/k but I wish you luck in the test or the repair.

Soldering is not as hard as it looks if you have a steady hand.

I've seen a MB with 3 missing that worked fiene, go figure.
You should consider "Gee, it don't seem to work right, why were these little round things sitting in the box, do I have to install them, where do they go?"
That is when contacting for an RMA
