I have a sapphire radeon 9700pro.....a fan I had epoxied on fell off yesterday and took a capacitor with it.....it broke the little capacitor arms off so I need to buy one to replace it and solder it back on in the lab....

Does anyone know the specs on this capacitor

Location:
it is the capacitor on the bottom left side of the board (the side away from the agp slot).....it is the one in the upper right corner of the group of capacitors in this corner.....it says the following on the capacitor

A28
470
6.3V

what do these mean and where can I buy one?....I hope I can repair this pretty easily because it has nice solder points to work with and hopefully I can do this....
can anyone give me some advice?

THanks!!

Also what would happen if I tried to boot without this capacitor?...im not going to just curious

actually I was epoxying a orb cooler onto my 9700 when it was out of my system and it fell off and took out a capacitor....it looks like it would be an easy one to solder back on if I could figure out what kind of capacitor it was and where to get one.....I will take pics or find one

thanks
