Missing Capacitors

By Paste
Dec 30, 2008
  1. I just got my XFX 9800 GT in the mail and apparently it's missing three capacitors to the right of the fan. I've compared my card to pictures on TigerDirect and Newegg and they all show that the card has three more capacitors than it actually has. What should I do? Is this normal? What will happen if I put it in my computer? Will it function properly? Thank you.

    Exactly which model do you have?

    It could either be missing capacitors or it could just be a different PCB layout that doesn't need what you see pictured online.

    I don't know which model, but it looks exactly like the pictures except the capacitors. I don't think there are any other models.
