well I got a old hp compaq d530 sff (dad got for me at garage sale lot) and it wont post, about 70%+ of the caps look like they were leaking and 2 so bad they have rust spewing out and I was wondering if I could replace the caps to make it work? or is it just done?

the mobo wouldnt post screen no beep codes
fans, lights, hdd spinning up

Plans:
repair mobo
cpu in with its cooler it came with(not the compaq's stock cooler)
new heatsink mounting bracket(1-4 latch was broken)
agp extension cable
pci extension cable
put in my geforce 8800 gs
wifi card it came with
dvd none
hdd none
more airflow lower heat^
flash drive with linux os
remove the riser board
think thats it

there was a intel cpu box that had a heatsink in it that I got with the lot
I think the ppl b4 me replaced it thinking it went bad or somting

I even got a asus p5a socket 7 with a amd k6-2 in it and it look nice n clean no bad caps or anything but I got no ram for it :/ 
and some other pci cards videocard wires 2 keyboard old lcd monitor that I plan to use with this computer

Circuit board repair is a job for pros. If you have some spare parts around and want to prove this to yourself then have at it.
