Default Voodoo 3 missing two capacitors

I'd like to identify two small capacitors that were broken off before I got it. The card sometimes works but most of the time doesn't output VGA signal. I'm hoping replacing the caps will fix this.

There's one left and the markings are:
10
16S
0G2

I'm guessing that this means 10uF, 16V. No idea about 0G2.

Would this be a suitable replacement?

Thanks

If they were really small probably 10uf 16v as you said, 0g2 looks like a code, something to do with the date or batch who knows, do you have any pics?

Yes, they are really small. No pics, smartphone camera sucks and I don't have time to take a proper photo right now.

If the size is the same those that you listed from farnell should work

There are pictures of many different "voodoo3" cards here http://hw-museum.cz/collection-vga.php?type=3dfx you should be able to see which cap's are missing and their values, the last 3 letters are likely date codes. If the missing ones are the same size as one thats still on the board, you can measure it for the correct size.

I took the caps from another voodoo 3 board but that still didn't fix the board.
