    Repaired a XFX 6770 yesterday of my sister's friend. It was not giving any display along with VGA init beeps from mobo. Cleaned it and replaced some caps. Popped it in. And Bingo! :)

    After the repair work, I washed the card with water(it was in horrible condition) and isopropyl alcohol, dried up the water by using the blower of a vacuum cleaner. Cleaned the heatsinks as much as possible, applied fresh thermal compound and cleaned up the excess soldering flux I used. Connected the card, powered on system and Bingo here goes!

    Played BF 4 for 2.5 hrs and COD Ghosts for 3 hrs. Super stable even after overclock. :D

    I replaced some SMD caps in the vicinity of the GPU voltage controller. Since there is no way to read the values of those caps, I just took the size into consideration. I salvaged some caps from the legendary 2005 Intel motherboard and soldered it onto the corresponding sections. They I washed the card in water completely and with isopropyl alcohol to remove the flux I used. That was all I did.
    EDIT: If you need to replace solid caps, you don't necessarily have to use solid caps only. Find equivalent electrolytic caps. They will work equally good.

    Its luck and trial and error. I match both colors and sizes and they always worked for me. Previous repairs done by me in case of HDDs and motherboards and mobile phone PCBs.

    Oh. Yeah they work too. I have seen repairs done such a way. You have to find the correct electrolytic cap in place of the faulty solid cap.
