    Hi guys, I broke a few small components off of the back of my GTS 450's PCB a while back and it no longer works. I have some decent soldering skills and I have confidence in myself that I can repair it, but I have no idea what parts to buy, here is a picture of the damage.

    I might try and contact ECS and see if they are willing to give me the values, I guess its worth a shot.

    I got some very useful info from a thread I started on 4chan in /diy/ so I am going to try and replace the missing parts with some parts from a broken motherboard I have. I will report back with the results.

    Those are SMD capacitors. Easy to get them replaced. :)

    im a a bit late to the party, but, you should try with some ghetto soldered normal capacitors. to check if it works.

    also those capacitors seem to be connected in parallel. so they are added like their algebric sum.
