Gonna have to be real good with a soldering iron....Also not all caps are the same Capacitor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

im not to worried about messing up the gpu nor the 360 mobo as they are just sitting around collecting dust & i need somewhere to begin learning + ill practice removing the caps that i cant use for the gpu but the ? still remains can i do that?

It would have to have the same rating as the original...At one time I would have recommended Radio Shack, but a electronics supply house would be most likely a better bet....Capacitor Replacement Tutorial - YouTube... needed equipment....Capacitor Lab - Replacing Motherboard Capacitors Howto A fast and dirty way is to pull the capacitor off with pliers then solder to the legs left behind....but if it goes wrong pcb - How to remove remnants of a capacitor pin? - Electrical Engineering

Yep. Anything else is a recipe for failure.

FZ81 1600 6.3v is a 1600uf at 6.3v which is not an easy value to find, you may have better luck with a 2200uf 6.3v or 10v as long as the part will fit. You can always go up in capacitance by a preferred value but never down, the same applies to voltage. You will need some solder wick to clean out the holes so you can install the new part.

Over the years I have recapped many power supplies in monitors, TV's and motherboards. It can be done. Sometimes the caps blow as they are underrated. The maximum working temperature and or voltage can be exceeded in a hot case or when gaming. With a failure like this the parts are cheap and the job is fairly easy. Replace the part, you have nothing to lose and your GPU back in good working order to gain.
