    I have recently been looking to revive an older retro gaming PC, and have dug out my old 3Dfx Voodoo 3 Video Card.

    I put the card into storage many years ago, as I broke it and lost the capacitor that came off.

    I now have the replacement part (10uF 16v SMD Capacitor), and I am on the hunt for someone who can fit the replacement part, and give the card a physical look-over to see if there are any further issues.

    Can anyone assist? Happy to pay for the trouble.

    Edit - typos.

    Sadly I'm no longer in Perth and given the current situation, it'll be a while before I travel back over. I'll flick you a PM if/when I travel back - would be happy to help if you're still looking for someone.

    Thank you :) I appreciate the offer, please hit me up when you return to Perth as so far you are the only offer I've had. I'd love to get the card going again to relive some memories of late-90s gaming.

    If it is just chucking a new cap on it, I can certainly do that.
